Preseason Hockey Madness: KHL enforcer Ryspayev takes on whole team – on ice and bench
A mass fight erupted in a preseason game of KHLâ€™s Barys Astana and the leagueâ€™s newest Chinese extension Red Star Kunlun when â€“ in just the third minute of the game â€“ Astanaâ€™s enforcer Damyr Ryspayev decided to fight everyone from the opposing team on the ice and on the bench.
Barys Astanaâ€™s previous encounter with Red Star Kunlun on Friday resulted with an injury of one of Barysâ€™ main players Dustin Boyd, who will now need two to four months for rehabilitation.
The teamâ€™s head coach, Andrey Nazarov, who used to be an enforcer in NHL and KHL himself, promised â€œa warm welcomeâ€ for the Red Star in the next game.
Clearly, Ryspayev didnâ€™t hesitate to welcome Red Starâ€™s players with a number of punches, going from one player to another.
After there was no one left to fight on the ice, Ryspayev went straight to Red Starâ€™s bench to pick a fight with the rest of the team.
Kazakhstan native Ryspayev, who is only 21, has built himself a strong reputation in the KHL over the last few seasons, apparently calling all the leagueâ€™s big guys for a fight.
