John Hayden took on Marcus Foligno in the first big fight for the Blackhawks this season. An evenly matched heavyweight battle between the roughly 6’3″ 225 lb men.

It was a long back and forth battle for around a minute and looked like it was on the verge of being stopped. Then, Hayden connected with a huge right to the side of the Wild player’s head. Hayden didn’t knock him out but he knocked him down.

After the fight you can see both fighters inflicted some damage on each other but Hayden was the clear victor.

The fight may have had something to do with this hit Foligno put on Brent Seabrook earlier in the game.
