On December 5th the Canadiens decided to send Swiss-born minor league left winger Alain Berger from Hamilton to the Wheeling Nailers of the ECHL.  Rather than report to Wheeling, Berger signed a two year contract with SC Bern of the Swiss National League.

Bern is currently locked in a semi-final playoff series against Fribourg-Gotteron.  At the end of the third period of game one, with Bern leading 4-1, Berger and Fribourg’s Sebastien Schilt decided to fight.  As you watch this strange-looking encounter remember that players are given a game misconduct for fighting, but “fighting” under international rules means dropping the gloves.   At the end of this, Berger was given a two minute roughing minor and Schilt, was given the game misconduct after he went bare-knuckled at the end of the affair.

All of that said…..here it is.
