In a recent game between the Chicago Blackhawks' AHL team, the Rockford Icehogs and the Texas Stars, things got intense when Brandon Baddock, the assistant captain of the IceHogs, made a questionable move.

During the game, Baddock delivered a late and blindside hit to the head of Logan Stankoven, a rising prospect for the Dallas Stars.

Baddock might have thought he could get away with it, but that wasn't the case.

Curtis McKenzie, the captain of the Texas Stars, wasn't having it. Instead of waiting for officials, McKenzie took action, swiftly retaliating against Baddock.

The result? A chaotic pile-up on the ice, with unclear details at the bottom, but the aftermath was clear.


As Baddock emerged, the consequences of McKenzie's response were visible. Baddock's face and visor were marked in a deep shade of red, showing the impact of the on-ice altercation.
