Abstract: The authors use data from fight logs during the2016-2017 regular National Hockey League (NHL) season to test for a differencein the proportion of games with and without fights for each of the thirty NHLteams. Only one team (Toronto Maple Leafs) was more likely to be involved in afight at a home game than at an away game. Teams that fought proportionallymore often in the second half of the season made the playoffs; teams thatfought significantly less often did not. And, long distance air travel (flightsinvolving more than 1000 miles or trips that required crossing at least onetime zone) resulted in disproportionately more games with fights for eightdifferent NHL teams.
