Bobby Goepfert, Billy Sauer Fight: Goalies Brawl During ECHL Game (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Four sets of fights broke out in the second period of Wednesday night's East Coast Hockey League game between the Florida Everblades and Gwinnett Gladiators, including a brawl between both goalies.

According to Craig Handel of the News Press, Florida goalie Bobby Goepfert skated over to help his teammate Ethan Graham, who was fighting Gwinnett's Danick Paquette.

After Goepfert "took some swings" at Paquette, Gwinnett goalie Billy Sauer skated over and challenged him to a fight. Goepfert landed a few punches and reportedly received a loud roar from the crowd.

"I know anytime goalies fight, it's a big deal," Goepfert said. "It's nice when you get appreciated for standing up for a teammate. It's part of the game, hopefully not every game. I'm not the biggest guy in the world, but it's not the size of the dog, you know?"
