Tim Hunter win by TKO Fun 
7
Don Jackson was as game as anyone in the NHL. He never hesitated to take on top heavyweights, even guys who had beaten him in previous encounters. On this occasion, he took on long-time foe Tim Hunter. Hunter was the superior fighter and Jackson had an uphill fight on his hands.

Tim got his right hand going early in the bout. He landed a solid blow, a decent punch, and a partial connect. Jackson missed with a left and several rights. Hunter had a good grip on his right arm and this affected the accuracy of Don's punches.

Tim missed a few punches, landed a partial connect, and connected with a solid blow. He missed with a couple of punches. Jackson pushed Hunter into the boards. He got closer to his adversary and was more successful for a time. He landed a decent blow and a solid shot. He missed with a few punches and landed a partial connect.

Hunter missed a couple of punches and landed a couple of decent shots. Tim made a good tactical adjustment. He reached across his body and grabbed Jackson's right hand. Tim switched to throwing left hooks and Don could not defend or parry the blows with his right hand. Hunter landed a solid punch and a good shot. Jackson started to go down. Tim landed one more solid punch and the fight was over.

This was a TKO win for Hunter. He did a nice job of mitigating the effects of Jackson's punches in the bout. Tim landed some effective right hands and switched hands at the perfect time. Hunter made a brilliant tactical decision at the end and Jackson was check-mated. Don had no chance after Tim started landing left hooks with pretty good pop.

Hunter had an important role as the primary enforcer for the Flames. He was one of the most willing fighters in the NHL. He was a very good fighter who could give top heavyweights all they could handle. Tim was a key participant in the Alberta wars in the intense rivalry between the Calgary and Edmonton squads. He performed well in his many fights against Oilers players.

Tim consistently got the better of Jackson. He beat Dave Semenko a couple of times. Dave got the better of him in an ifighting contest in a subsequent match. Hunter beat Kevin McClelland, Kelly Buchberger, Louie DeBrusk, Jeff Beukeboom, and Steve Smith. Marty McSorley proved to be the superior fighter, but Tim was always willing to battle the elite Oilers heavyweight. Edmonton picked up Dave Brown, who got the better of him in a scrap.

Hunter was a good enforcer and a complete fighter. He was a smart tactician, good puncher, and tireless performer. Tim had an almost inhuman ability to take punishment in fights. He was by no means a big heavweight, but he could hold his own with most of the biggest and baddest men in the NHL. Tim did a good job of protecting his many skilled teammates. He was an important cog in the Flames championship team in 1989. He was richly deserving of having his name engraved on the Stanley Cup.

Tim Hunter checks Don Jackson and Jackson gets the stick up to defend himself but Hunter doesn't like it and shoves Jackson afterwards. They decide to drop their gloves and they each get a grip on each other's jersey immediately. Hunter keeps his head low as they grapple but maintain some space from each other. Jackson then misses a left as Hunter misses a right and Jackson gets turned around as a result. Hunter gets his arm going, throwing a series of twelve rights and landing six, two connecting cleanly but the rest only glancing and grazing Jackson. Jackson takes a couple moments to switch hands and straighten himself, and then misses three rights, unable to quite get himself set. Jackson pushes Hunter against the bench boards, getting Hunter to stop throwing. Jackson gets his arm going then, throwing a series of eight rights and landing three, two connecting decently well. Hunter slides off the boards and soon has his arm going again, throwing seven rights and landing six, three of which connect nicely and get Jackson's head low. Hunter then takes a couple moments to switch hands while Jackson misses a right. Hunter gets his arm loose and lands three lefts, two connecting nicely with one buckling Jackson and the other putting him down on the ice. The linesmen rush in to break it up as Hunter falls on top of Jackson. Very entertaining scrap between Jackson and Hunter. Hunter took the upper hand early on with a good series of rights but Jackson came back and got some good trading going late in the fight. Jackson landed some punches but Hunter again had the upper hand and then finished the fight with a few lefts that TKO'd Jackson.

Great fight here, both guys going toe-2-toe, but only Hunter looks to be landing...Jackson is throwing tons of punches, but most are going wide or falling just short, and he's absorbing a load of punishment from Hunter. Tim has him back on his heals, and when Jackson finally looks to be landing a few of his own, Hunter switches from rights to lefts and catches Jackson with two solid shots that puts Jackson down on his butt. Good fight, a tko win for the Hunt.

Dave Semenko and Charlie Bourgeois get tangled up in the corner and Semenko gets a gloved left in on Bourgeois. Semenko skates away afterwards but suddenly stops and turns back to Bourgeois. Semenko drops the gloves and misses a right as Bourgeois ducks, going low on Semenko. Semenko grabs Bourgeois and misses a right while Bourgeois grabs Semenko's legs and lifts him off the ice. Bourgeois plants Semenko down to the ice and drops the gloves while getting right over top of Semenko. They grapple with each other but the linesmen come in and break it up before anymore can get going between the two. An awful battle between two big tough guys. Semenko only threw a couple punches which missed while Bourgeois immediately went for the takedown. Draw.

This was the second fight in a very violent game in another chapter of the Battle of Alberta. Dave Semenko and Charlie Bourgeois come together in the corner and have a disagreement. Semenko gives Bourgeois a gloved left and starts to skate away. However Semenko has second thoughts and turns back to face Bourgeois who is willing to oblige him. Semenko drops his gloves, getting a bit of a jump on Bourgeois as he misses with a right. Bourgeois ducks down and grabs Semenko by the legs. Semenko misses with a right before being taking down to the ice by Bourgeois. Bourgeois pins Semenko there and they wrestle around while the linesmen pile in to break them up.

Draw as the two men fell down almost immediately after the fight started.

Jim Peplinski narrow win Fun

Tempers are high with multiple tough guys out on the ice for both teams and Edmonton Oilers' enforcer, Dave Semenko pairs off with Calgary Flames' power forward, Jim Peplinski by the benches. They waste no time dropping the gloves and Semenko gets in tight after they grab on. Peplinski lands a right to the body and then loses his helmet while missing a left as Semenko misses a right. Semenko grabs Peplinski's hair as Peplinski misses two rights and then wrestles Semenko into the boards while Semenko lands a right. Peplinski throws five rights and lands two as Semenko works himself off the boards and gets a hand into Peplinski's face. Peplinski tries to push Semenko's head back but can't and instead throws three rights and lands one before wrestling Semenko back against the boards. Peplinski then misses two rights as Semenko gets off the boards and misses a right. Peplinski throws two rights and lands one and then gets his hand into Semenko's face. The linesmen intercede but Peplinski doesn't stop, throwing five rights and landing one over the linesmen before being pulled away from Semenko. A scrappy and somewhat dirty fight between Semenko and Peplinski. Peplinski was more active and clearly landed more punches while Semenko mostly just wrestled. Edge to Peplinski in a boring fight.

This wasn't pretty, but Pepper got the job done. Jim landed a body blow and missed a left. He landed a partially-connecting right. Semenko missed a punch and landed a light right. Peplinski missed a blow. The men wrestled and fought along the Calgary bench area. Pepper missed a shot and landed two light blows. He missed a blow and landed a decent punch.

Dave was uncharacteristically inactive with punching. He was wrestling and seemingly uncomfortable with the infighting. He was trying to scratch around the eyes and hairline. Peplinski landed a partial connect and missed a shot. He landed an average blow and a light punch. Semenko continued to mostly wrestle. The officials jumped in. Jim missed a shot and landed a couple of late blows. He landed a decent punch and a partial connect while Dave was under wraps.

I rate this as a narrow win for Peplinski. He didn't land any big shots, but he landed several moderately effective blows. Not all of the punches were effective, but I thought four or five blows landed with at least decent impact. I think it was enough to secure a win. It was a sluggish performance by Semenko.

Don Jackson and Tim Hunter meet up at center ice but away from that, a fight has broken out between Dave Semenko and Jim Peplinski. Peplinski tosses a body shot and Semenko misses with a right as Peplinski's helmet falls off. Peplinski lands two rights to the side of Semenko's head. Semenko connects with two rights to the side of Peplinski's head before Peplisnki wrestles him up against the Calgary bench. Peplinski lands two rights and the two briefly move away from the bench. Peplinski misses with a right before landing two more blows and he wrestles Semenko back up against the bench. Peplinski lands two rights, Semenko lands a weak right and takes two more shots. Peplinski pulls Semenko's hair and the officials come in. However Peplinski throws a couple more punches over the linesmen at Semenko. The officials have a heck of a time getting them apart but finally do. However more mayhem breaks out as Kevin McClelland and Tim Hunter throw down.

Peplinski successfully neutralized Semenko by fighting on the inside. Semenko couldn't get free and as a result he was unable to generate any offense. Peplinski landed the only punches so he gets the decision here.

Semenko crosschecked his old nemesis Tim Hunter which prompted Peplinski to step in. They wrestle for practically the entire fight. Peplinski tries more than Semenko who holds on and don't throw much at Peplinski. Peplinski's punches are harmless and mostly misses or lands on top of Semenko's head. Still edge Peplinski.

A view blockage from the camera's angle doesn't allow us to see what Semenko was doing while we see Peplinski's arm actively swinging away. When the camera gets a better view of things, Peplinski again seemed to be throwing more than Semenko. Call it a narrow win for Peplinski.

After Dave Semenko and Jim Peplinski are broken up following their fight, Peplinski is escorted to the box while Semenko gets away from the linesman who was with him. Semenko wades into a crowd of players and throws an elbow at Steve Tambellini. The linesman grabs Semenko and pulls him out of the crowd as Don Jackson grabs Tambellini to hold him back. Tim Hunter ends up pairing off with Kevin McClelland a few moments later and they wind up in a fierce fight, both guys unloading with punches while lying on the ice. They get up and continue to scrap but Hunter takes over and the linesmen make their way into the fight. Hunter is escorted off but McClelland goes after Tambellini, who's still with Jackson. McClelland knocks Tambellini down and Tambellini gets up wanting a piece of McClelland. A linesman pushes McClelland away and escorts him to the dressing room but just before they get to the door, McClelland notices another fight underway at the other end of the ice between Charlie Bourgeois and Dave Hunter. Jackson and Tambellini pair off nearby and wrestle around while Steve Konroyd and Randy Gregg also pair off and get tangled up close to the fight. McClelland races down the ice to get involved but the linesman chases down McClelland and pulls him to the ice from behind. McClelland gets up still mad and tries to get at Tim Hunter, who's standing at the bench. The linesmen push Tim Hunter and McClelland apart and then McClelland reaches for Steve Bozek, who's on the bench. Bozek jabs his stick at McClelland to keep him back while the fight between Bourgeois and Dave Hunter gets broken up after Tim Hunter is sent off the ice. McClelland meanwhile does some jawing with the Calgary Flames' bench before being taken off the ice. A great line brawl in the Battle of Alberta. Fun

This was one of the most unique fights I've ever seen. This was a great action fight between McClelland and Hunter. It took place in the context of an exciting line brawl between the Flames and the Oilers. Kevin and Tim were dance partners in the brawl. Tim landed a solid right hand as Kevin landed a decent left. McClelland lost his balance and fell backwards to the ice.

The men proceeded to trade shots while lying on the ice. This was the first time I've seen this in a hockey fight. Kevin threw left hands and Hunter went with rights. McClelland landed a partial connect, missed a few punches, and landed a couple of solid blows. He followed up with a decent shot.

Hunter landed the more effective punches while the men were on the ice. He landed a pretty good right hand and a solid shot. He missed a couple of punches. He landed a pretty good right and a solid connect. McClelland realized Tim was winning the fight on the ice. He got to his feet first and Hunter got up as well.

Tim made a good tactical decision. He realized that Kevin relied heavily on his powerful left hand. Hunter was better at using a two-handed attack. He could generate good power in his left hand. Tim decided to tie up McClelland's left hand and throw lefts of his own. The move worked perfectly. Hunter completely neutralized Kevin's attack and slowed his punch output to a crawl.

McCllelland showed little imagination in this instance. He could not get lefts off. He did not switch to throwing rights. He was unable to even use his right hand to tie up Hunter's left hand. Tim started to tee off while facing virtually no incoming fire.

Hunter missed a couple of punches. He landed a decent punch and a solid connect. He missed a punch and landed a solid left. He missed a few blows. He landed a pretty good uppercut and a solid left hook. Kevin finally got his left free, but he missed a punch. Tim missed a punch and landed one final partial connect.

McClelland was furious in the aftermath of the loss. He knew Hunter had outsmarted him and won the fight. Kevin went after Steve Tambellini and tried to attack him after the refs broke up the bout. Insult was added to injury as Kevin tried to get into another altercation. An official made a good open-ice tackle on McClelland as the clip ended.

This was a clear win for Hunter. Tim showed a high fighting IQ. He had the advantage in power when the men were swapping blows while lying on the ice. Hunter used a longer range of motion with his blows and his punches had better momentum because they traveled further to the target and generated more power. McClelland's left hands did not travel as far and did not generate the same leverage or power. Hunter had the advantage in the ground game because he utilized the simple laws of physics in a superior manner.

Hunter was a more complete fighter who could use both hands effectively in a bout. He made a calculated decision to switch to throwing lefts when the men were on their skates. He tied up McClelland's left arm. Kevin showed little imagination. He did not throw right hands. He did not even tie up Hunter's left with his free hand. Tim schooled McClelland in this fight and demonstrated that a cerebral approach will win out over brute strength.

Right after the Peplinski-Semenko fight, Hunter went at it with McClelland. Hunter drilled McCelland with a right that sent McClelland to the ice with Hunter falling down as well. Then they almost bizarrely traded punches while lying on the side beside each other. I've never seen that before. It even prompted the amazed commentator to say: "This is getting a little bit out of whack, isn't it?".

Well, they got up after a few seconds and Hunter was really giving it to McClelland who couldn't keep up with Hunter's pace. Hunter just bombed away with lefts and McCelland was spanked good. When they were separated there was another whacky situation as McCelland just raced towards the Flames bench but was tackled to the ice by one of the zebras. McCelland motioned to the Flames bench, trying to take them all on. Well, it wasn't as cool as Wensink's challenge, especially since he had just lost easily to Hunter. Nevertheless, it was hilarious to see him sprint down the ice towards the Flames bench chased by a zebra.

The linesmen break up Dave Semenko and Jim Peplinski but Semenko gets away from one linesman and throws an elbow at Steve Tambellini amidst a crowd of players. Tim Hunter tries to get at Semenko but Kevin McClelland intervenes, grabbing Hunter while the linesman pulls Semenko away and takes him off the ice. Charlie Bourgeois grabs McClelland from behind and drags him down with McClelland missing a left and Hunter missing a right. Bourgeois lets go of McClelland as they hit the ice and keep throwing. Both McClelland and Hunter are on their backs and unleashing punches on each other, McClelland connecting on three of nine lefts and Hunter connecting on four of six rights. Hunter is faster getting up but puts his head down while getting in close on McClelland. As they wrestle, Hunter switches to the left and then raises his head before standing back with McClelland. Hunter connects with a left as McClelland misses a left and Hunter lands two more lefts afterwards. McClelland gets his head down and misses a left as Hunter lands a left. Hunter then throws seven lefts in a row, landing four as McClelland switches to the right. McClelland then connects with a right while Hunter misses a left but McClelland misses a right afterwards and falls onto his knees. Hunter lands a left and then lands a left as McClelland misses a right while getting up. McClelland tries to get his left loose as they grapple but cannot and the linesmen decide to intercede at that point. Great fight with some unusual but intense trading happening right at the beginning. Both guys were pounding away on the other but Hunter got the best of it, landing more and better. When they got back up, Hunter took even more control of the fight, landing many lefts as McClelland couldn't get going. McClelland did get in a good right but went down soon after and when he recovered, they only grappled before it was over.

Wow .... hate-filled roll in the hay, lol. Should make the top-100 fights of all time and if not, then make room for it. Hunter wins the punch-count while they were laying on the ice (6 punches to 3 punches) . Then, while they're back on their feet, Hunter winds up picking up momentum by outpunching him him (8 punches to 3 punches), but i'm not calling this a decisive win. This is because McClelland looked like he absorbed the punches well so that he still seemed indestructible even towards the end, so no rescue was needed. Total facial-punches: 14 for Hunter vs. 6 for McClelland.

Kevin Lowe leaves the penalty box while serving a major penalty for spearing to fight Carey Wilson late in the game. The fight is all Lowe and since he left the box, some other players get on the ice. As Lowe is in total control and pummeling away on Wilson, Paul Baxter decides to jump in. With Baxter third man in, Mike Krushelnyski and Billy Carroll hurry in after Baxter to pull him off of Lowe. Krushelnyski hauls Baxter to the ice from behind while Kari Eloranta grabs at Krushelnyski. Mike Huddy comes in and along with Carroll, grabs Eloranta and takes him down with Krushelnyski and Baxter. With all the interference from other players, the linesmen choose to get in and break up Lowe and Wilson. Meanwhile Dave Semenko pairs off with Steve Konroyd while Randy Gregg and Jim Peplinski likewise come together. Gregg and Peplinski drop their gloves but there's only a single punch thrown before Gregg wrestles Peplinski to the ice. Semenko and Konroyd also drop the gloves but their fight is much more eventful. Semenko gets Konroyd's head down and starts punching away with rights. A linesman moves in but Semenko knees Konroyd and that backs the linesman out. Semenko lets up for a little bit though and Peplinski manages to get out from underneath Gregg. Peplinski wants to help out Konroyd and starts speeding around the ice trying to get back into the brawl. Gregg follows Peplinski around while the benches empty slowly. Gregg grabs Peplinski who ends up grabbing onto Krushelnyski, who's with Colin Patterson. Robert Kromm and Paul Coffey have paired off and move by the rest of the players near centre ice. Players coming off the bench join into the big crowd, including Lowe, who's out of his jersey and has gotten away from a linesman. Lowe grabs Peplinski from behind and Paul Reinhart grabs Lowe to pull him away. Don Jackson then gets a hold of Peplinski and holds him back after Lowe goes to the ice beneath Reinhart with Peplinski trying to get at Lowe. Jackson drags Peplinski away and a linesman comes by to try to settle Peplinski. Lowe is grabbed by a linesman and taken to the bench while Semenko, being held by a linesman, tries to get at Peplinski. Peplinski wrestles around with Jackson and gets him down while Kromm and Coffey wrestle about as well and end up knocking into Jamie Macoun and Glenn Anderson, then Reggie Lemelin and Grant Fuhr. Lemelin falls on top of Fuhr as Semenko grabs at Kromm and gets a punch in on him. Patterson notices and grabs Semenko but is held back by Jari Kurri. The linesman works Semenko away from Kromm while Peplinski lets Jackson get up with the rest of the rough stuff dying down as well. A very long bench-clearing brawl. There were several fights with Lowe leaving the penalty box to fight Wilson starting it all. That was a one-sided win for Lowe and a couple other fights broke out shortly thereafter. Gregg and Peplinski's fight was over in a matter of seconds but Semenko and Konroyd got going much more. Semenko was in total control and landed a number of punches on Konroyd who just ducked and hung on until getting kneed by Semenko. That got tempers high and it wasn't long after that the benches cleared. With everyone on the ice, there was plenty of action with guys trying to get at each other and some others just wrestling around. Semenko stayed on the ice and tried to get at Kromm when he was wrestling around with Coffey. Other players got in quickly though and when the linesman finally got Semenko out of the brawl, it came to a close. Fun

Good brawl, lots of dislike between the two teams which is what you would expect from a rivalry in those days and rivalries didn't get much better than Calgary/Edmonton back then. Fun

Lowe really hammered him, throwing rights in succession. He looked incredibly mad.

Dave Semenko decisive win Fun

Semenko was a master at no holds barred fighting. He would head butt, knee opponents, and sucker punch guys whenever he felt he could get away with it. On this occasion, the cheap style of fighting was on display for the hockey world to see.

Konroyd was in a bad position. He was bent over and Semenko had him wrapped up. Dave landed a partial connect with a right hand and landed a couple of decent connects. Konroyd could get nothing going offensively. Semenko landed some pretty good rights and an official grabbed his arm with the intent of stopping the bout. Dave kneed Steve in the face in an incredibly cheap and dirty move. He followed up with a pretty good punch. Konroyd missed badly with a right hand. The fight may have continued awhile longer, but the cameras went to cover other altercations in the bench-clearer.

I rate this as a decisive win for Semenko. He landed several effective shots and had Konroyd in a bad position. An official interrupted the volley of effective right hands and may have prevented a couple more from landing. Steve did not land a punch and was not able to compete.

Semenko continued with his bad boy ways. He suckered another Flames player who was in a fight later in the DYG footage of the brawl. The knee to the face was an incredibly cheap and dirty move on the part of Semenko. Dave was definitely one of the dirtiest players in NHL history. There is ample footage of him attacking opponents in the most vile of ways. Semenko appeared to rate fights by his own scoring system. He was a terrific fighter and one of the elite fighters in the 1980's. He scoffed at Marquis of Queensbury rules.

Dave broke all of the rules. He was the ultimate renegade on the ice. He was looking to bring the pain and it made no difference to him whether it was through legal or illegal means. He had a style that would have been highly effective in street fighting. Semenko took a beating in a fight with Tim Hunter. Tim was handing him his lunch and Dave kneed him in the face. In Semenko's mind, this may have been a close fight in terms of the amount of pain inflicted. He cared little if outside observers gave the big edge to Hunter.

Semenko was reviled by many fight fans. Still, an honest appraisal of his skills indicates that he was one of the top guns in the NHL for a long time. Despite the derisive nickname of "Cement Head," Dave made adjustments in his fights and could employ sound tactical fight plans. A prime example was when he beat Tim Hunter by getting him in an infighting contest. Dave had made the mistake of not effectively tying up Hunter's arms in a couple previous scraps.

Semenko was particularly brutal in fights with the Flames. There were regular brawls in the "Battle of Alberta" heated rivalry. Dave was up to his usual antics as the biggest wildman on the ice in these heated contests.

Semenko was a remnant of a bygone era where an enforcer could get away with acts of thuggery on the ice on a consistent basis. He would have received stiff suspensions for incidents like the knee to the face of Hunter and Konroyd if they occurred in the present day . Dave got away with whatever he could. He cared little about the minor punishments of getting misconducts or getting kicked out of games. The NHL did not take major action against these infractions in this era. He would have had to dramatically change his style of play to have lasted in today's NHL.

Dave Semenko decisive win Fun

Late in the game, a bench clearing brawl erupts between the two rivals from Alberta. Tough guy Dave Semenko who has already fought twice pairs off with Steve Konroyd much to Konroyd's misfortune. When we first see the two men, Konroyd is bent over and holding on for dear life. Semenko tries to get his helmet off and he lands two rights. The camera pans away to another fight and when it goes back, Semenko has Konroyd in some real trouble. He lands four rights on the Flame who is ducking down and just trying to weather the storm. The referee comes over and tries to get them to separate. He backs off though but it probably would have been better if he had gotten involved. Semenko throws a knee at Konroyd before landing a right. Konroyd misses with a right and buries his head in Semenko's chest. The camera then focused on the other action and we don't see what happens at the conclusion of the fight.

Semenko pounded on Konroyd who was in serious trouble, making this a decisive win. However Semenko was a real prick. He was obviously tougher and had the upper hand, but threw an unnecessary (and very cheap) knee at Konroyd. What is interesting is that Semenko got into fights with weaker Calgary players in this game like Konroyd, Peplinski, and Bourgeois. Yet when he fought Tim Hunter late in the season, he got destroyed. This is why it's hard to like Semenko. He was undoubtedly a great enforcer but he was just so dirty and didn't do very well against some of the top dogs in the league.

God, Semenko was such a fucking piece of shit. He kneed Hunter in one of their fights, too, after the man with the greatest nose of all time got the better of him

All Semenko here as he pounds away on Konroyd who never lands a blow and is left to only cover up and wait for someone to intervene, Semenko even threw and MMA style knee on the bent over Konroyd, decisive win Semenko.

redwingsweretough, you're right, semenko took a cheap shot at konroyd even while semenko was over-dominating the fight. That's why i never felt sorry for semenko whenever someone beat the crap out of him like in the classic sememko-tim hunter fight.Reply

As the linesmen get between Kevin Lowe and Carey Wilson to break up that fight, a couple other fights get going, one between Dave Semenko and Steve Konroyd, the other between Randy Gregg and Jim Peplinski. They're paired off and get the gloves off with Gregg missing a right and then trying to get Peplinski's helmet off. Peplinski gets the gloves off and grabs for Gregg's helmet but Gregg wrestles Peplinski off balance and gets him down on the ice. Gregg holds Peplinski down for a lengthy while until Peplinski manages to get out from underneath Gregg and reenters the brawl. Nothing got going in this scrap, Gregg threw the only punch and went for the takedown before Peplinski could even get set.

Fight ends before it begins as the two go down before any punches are landed.
