Today In NHL History - Kovalchuk Fights McCabe

On April 9th in 2009, Thrashers superstar Ilya Kovalchuk challenged, fought and finished Panthers bruiser Bryan McCabe. 8 years his junior and 10 pounds his senior, the prize of the 2001 NHL Entry Draft KO'valuchuk'd the once-feared blueliner at the midpoint of their match.

Kudos to the captain for handling himself in front of the hometown few. Florida went on to beat Atlanta that night by a score of 3-2.

That's today in NHL history.
