  • Mayrand wins Battle of Hockey Enforcers

    I looked back three pages and did not see this listed, and the search option doesnt seem to be working (keeps timing out).

    PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. (CP) - The arena was about one-third full. There were long, confusing delays. One fighter never showed up and two others inexplicably started but didn't finish. Some people who paid between $35 and $200 to watch the inaugural Battle of the Hockey Enforcers left early. Others griped that they had never heard of most of the fighters.

    At least four fights broke out among patrons in the crowded beer garden at one end of the arena.

    Once in a while, between fights, the rink rats would skate out and scrape a little blood off the ice.

    But the promoters and many of the customers at CN Centre for the pay-per-view event, also known as Black and Blue, pronounced it a big success.

    Sixteen hockey players signed on to duke it out with each other - no sticks, pucks or hockey - just skating to centre ice and letting the fists fly for 60 seconds, or until the referee called a halt.

    In the end, Windsor, Ont., native Dean Mayrand, 27, earned a split decision and grabbed the $62,000 first prize with a crowd-pleasing win over Mike Sgroi, 27, a Toronto native who grew up in Florida.

    Mayrand plays minor professional hockey in Sorel, Que., in the fight-happy North American Professional Hockey League, while Sgroi spent last season with Wilkes-Barre of the American Hockey League.
