While fighting in the NHL has been on the decline in recent years, some teams still have a habit of dropping the gloves.

Analyzing data from the 2000-01 season onward, OnlineCasino.ca found that the Philadelphia Flyers are most likely to engage in fights, averaging a league-high 66.5 per season. The Calgary Flames came in second, followed by the Vancouver Canucks, Edmonton Oilers, and Anaheim Ducks.

The study also looked at which rival teams square off the most. Leading the way are the Montreal Canadiens and Boston Bruins, who have a long history of mutual hostility.
