The issue of fans getting too drunk at NHL games seems to be growing in recent years, with videos of disruptive behavior surfacing more frequently. Unfortunately, such incidents can really put a damper on the overall game experience for everyone involved.

During last night's match between the Vancouver Canucks and the Pittsburgh Penguins, things took a sour turn when one fan got into a physical altercation with another. Despite attempts by event staff to intervene, the situation escalated quickly as the man pushed a security guard and threw multiple punches.


The security guard took a hard fall backward into a railing, but thankfully, he appeared to escape serious injury as he managed to get back on his feet and escort the unruly fan out of the arena.


For the troublemaker, this likely meant spending the night in detention and facing a possible ban from future games. Details about what sparked the altercation or if anyone was hurt remain unclear. However, it's concerning to see such incidents becoming more frequent or perhaps just more visible thanks to smartphones capturing everything.
