Edmonton: FITE and Hockey Enforcers USA is ready to bring a new kind of action to combat sports – Ice Wars – letting hockey stars test their skills as all-out fighters. Catch the 8-man “King of the Rink” tournament action with FITE’s live PPV event from Edmonton, Canada on Saturday May 21st. Order it now below:
To prep future fans, FITE will present the original Battle of the Hockey Enforcers that inspired Ice Wars – the event took place once in 2006 to a massive positive response from fans but was never repeated. And Josh Shernoff will host a special episode of FITE in Focus interviewing the new league’s president AJ Galante, the former manager of the Danbury Trashers hockey team which got its own Netflix documentary recently, and a regular on WWE NXT.
Ice Wars leadership team also includes Charles Nama, the organizer of the original 2006 event, and Executive Producer Kato Kaelin. The agreement between FITE and Hockey Enforcers was brokered by the distribution division of LA-based Get Me Out Productions, led by Scott Emmer.
Ice Wars judges are made up of retired pro hockey players– all with tough reputations as enforcers. They include Frank Mark “The Animal” Bialowas, who has played with the NHL’s Toronto Maple Leafs and is a Philadelphia Phantoms’ Hall of Famer; Brad Wingfield who has played with teams across Canada and the US; and Jon “Nasty” Mirasty, who has played in several Canadian leagues and is now acting in the upcoming Canadian TV show Shorsey.
Here are the 8 man tournament participants announced thus far:
- “Diamond Hands” Daniel Amesbury
- Justin “Bonesaw” Sawyer
- “Cowboy” Kurtis Swanson
- Chase Tippin
- Corey “Alley Train” Allen
- “The Beast” Jean-Francois Lafrance
- Travis Levitsky
Special grudge matches:
- Keegan “Paddywhack” McGraw vs Justyce “Haymaker” Smoke
- Travis “Loose Cannon” Cech vs Bo “Jawbreaker” Cornell
