NO. 90

Max Domi might be more skilled than his father, Tie, but he can still throw down when he needs to.

Such was the case one November night, when Anaheim’s pesky Ryan Kesler hit Arizona rookie Jakob Chychrun. Domi, a sophomore himself, took exception to the play and challenged Kesler to a fight – one that ended quickly.

Domi landed a right uppercut, sending Kesler to the ice, amid a flurry of three more right uppercuts.
