The action in the stands at Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena was far more violent than on the actual ice when a fan ended up on the receiving end of a violent bludgeoning after he allegedly put his hands on a woman, resulting in his being beaten to a bloody pulp in front of horrified fans.
Video of the brutal beatdown that went down during Thursday’s NHL contest between the hometown Toronto Maple Leafs and the Washington Capitals has gone viral on social media where it continues to rack up views and comments.
In the recording of the one-sided scuffle, a young man wearing a blue jersey with the name and number of Maple Leafs captain John Tavares is seen lunging at an older fan on the arena stairs, pinning him to the floor and proceeding to land multiple blows to the head, smashing his glasses as fans tried to intervene.

“I will f**king kill you,” the younger man was heard saying multiple times during the altercation, “You can’t touch a girl like that,” he said as fans and security tried to break it up.
“I’m not a fighter, but don’t f***ing touch me,” he said as he was being held back.
The older man who was bleeding from the head was helped to his feet after the fight was broken up.
Twitter users offered up their takes on the mauling.
Went to a hockey game and a fight broke out. Who woulda thunk?

You KNOW the recipient had it coming when the two guys in the best position to intervene, do absolutely nothing: pic.twitter.com/yEvEIlmyoO

If he touched a girl without consent he deserved what he got. Men like that need this.

Young kid looks relaxed and calm afterwards. Old man looks drunk and confused. I’m assuming the old man pushed the girl at the beginning of the video as you can see on her on the ground. Good on the kid. Let’s find him so I can buy him a beer.

The thing that impresses me more than anything in these videos is the speed that people get their phones out, put their passcodes in, and start recording. If it was me it would have started when they were picking up the old guy.

I’m not defending the older man cause he was probably the culprit being drunk and all. But We are not in the Wild West. There are laws they could of reported him. No need for all out Rambo style attack! That could of created a major brawl and many people would of got hurt.

I swear he turned his glasses into contacts 😂

This is why they don’t let kids hold sticks at Scotiabank Center…

While the video is an incomplete version of what happened, one social media user posted an account from someone who claims to have been there.

The ugly pummeling took place in the same building where bad boy former Maple Leafs player Tie Domi prowled the ice, cracking skulls and racking up an eye-popping 3,515 penalty minutes which ranks third in the all-time NHL rankings but still lags behind Dave “Tiger” Williams, also a former enforcer for Toronto.
Tiger Williams never got a chance to play at Scotiabank Arena, instead bloodying the ice at the old Maple Leaf Gardens where he struck terror into the hearts of opponents during his time with the team.
The high-flying Maple Leafs who currently hold a four point lead over the Stanley Cup champion for second place in the Eastern Conference’s Atlantic Division, pulverized the Capitals 7-3.
