Above you'll see young Kevin Westgarth fighting Grendel Mitch Fritz. It was a spirited contest but I think Fritz won the fight because Westgarth tried to block every one of Fritz' punches with his face.

Battle of California writer RudyKelly gets his first exposure to ex-Islanders enforcer Mitch Fritz, who's in Coyotes camp.

"For me it's mostly eye contact. When you get hit or hit someone, if that eye contact is still there longer than it needs to be, that’s pretty much all you need. You drop the gloves and that’s part of the game."

Islanders enforcer prospect Micheal Haley in his Q&A at the official site. Later, on the life of a fighter: "If you like to fight, you’re going to have sore hands or a sore eyeball. I think it's worth it."

"I’m just looking forward and preparing like I can win a spot on the Islanders this year. I don’t want anyone to take my job. If I don’t make it, I’m gonna go down swinging."

>>Possible opening night enforcer Joel Rechlicz, speaking to Chris Botta. First, whether he's ready for a regular responsible shift or not, I love this attitude. Second: Don't you miss the days when a bunch of minor league enforcers would slug it out for a job during training camp? Those fights were often better than regular season ones.

"Georges looked at me and said, 'Do you want to do this?' and I obliged him. I knew at some point in the game I would have asked him, or he would have for sure given me a chance, and that’s exactly what Georges did. He gave a rookie like myself a chance to go. It wasn’t the best fight I’ve ever had, but you live and learn, and I thank Georges for giving me a chance."
