Fighting in ice hockey is an established tradition of the sport in North America, with a long history involving many levels of amateur and professional play and including some notable individual fights.[1] Although often a target of criticism, it is a considerable draw for the sport, and some fans attend games primarily to see fights.[2] Fighting is usually performed by one or more enforcers, or "goons"—players whose role it is to fight and intimidate—on a given team[3]

So now you know.

Here are the five funniest hockey-related tweets of the past week:

#5

Do your own homework, Elena.

#4

I'm hoping for more bubble hockey coverage.

#3

Whoa.

#2

If Canada was smart it would be empty.

#1 - The Fake Dan Ellis Memorial Tweet of the Week!

The greatest "Logan Couture looks like a horse" joke that has ever, or will ever, be made.

Remember, if you see a funny hockey tweet during the week and think it deserves a place in the top five, send it to me @MegalodonBOC .

Was @TheNHLHumor funny this week?

Jesus god NO. Certainly not as funny as Sean Avery, with this late addition:

If Sean Avery is self-aware enough for this tweet to have been funny INTENTIONALLY, then it's one of the funniest hockey tweets in history. But I just don't know. What do you think? Was Avery's tweet funny on purpose, or are we all just laughing at how blind he is to his own chicken-shittyness??
