I recently watched “Ice Guardians” on Netflix and thought it was very good. It is about fighting and the role of the enforcer in hockey. It looks at the issue historically, the role it plays in injuries and concussions, how it is good for the game, and why some people want to eliminate it. It is well done and very frankly addresses a somewhat controversial subject. The main takeaway is that the enforcer is very valuable to his team and the game as a whole. I think it is worth a hockey fan’s time to check it out. It was made in 2016 I believe. I don’t recall seeing any discussion here about it before.
