Vancouver Canucks rookie Jake Virtanen must be pretty pleased with himself after engaging in his first NHL fight on Sunday. But the real winner was one of his teammates who wasn't even playing.
Midway through the Canucks bout with the New Jersey Devils on Sunday, Devils forward (and recent AHL call-up) Bobby Farnham picked a fight with the 19-year-old Virtanen. Farnham is basically a career fighter, so Virtanen didn't stand much of a chance.

But that's okay, because Virtanen's teammate Brandon Prust (nursing an injury at home) totally owned Farnham on line.
