Video: Brandon Bollig fights ex-teammate Kyle Hagel this past Saturday in Rockford

Former teammates Brandon Bollig and Kyle Hagel, drop the mitts and engage in a classic battle on December 15th at the BMO Harris Bank Center in Rockford.

Bollig and Hagel were teammates on the IceHogs in the 2010-11 season when Bollig was in his rookie season after spending two years at St. Lawrence University.  Hagel, a Princeton University (2004-08) graduate, handled the bulk of the team’s enforcer role that season, fighting 31 times to Bollig’s 13.  After that season, Hagel signed a two-way deal with the St. Louis Blues organization but his 2011-12 season was cut short in late October by major shoulder surgery.  Hagel signed an AHL contract with his hometown Hamilton Bulldogs this past off season.

“He’s a tough kid,” Bollig said in respect of his former teammate following Saturday night’s contest.

“I’ve seen [Hagel] fight a lot of really tough guys. Those are the kind of fights that are fun when you’re in my position.”
