Edmonton: FITE and Hockey Enforcers USA are ready to bring a new kind of action to combat sports – Ice Wars – allowing hockey stars to test their skills as all-out fighters. Catch the 8-a-side King of the Rink tournament action with FITE’s live PPV event in Edmonton, Canada on Saturday, May 21. Order it now below:
To prepare future fans, FITE will present the original Hockey Enforcers battle that inspired Ice Wars – the event took place once in 2006 to a massive positive fan response but has never been repeated. And Josh Shernoff will host a special episode of FITE in Focus interviewing new league president AJ Galante, the former Danbury Trashers hockey team manager who recently got his own Netflix documentary, and a WWE NXT regular.
The Ice Wars executive team also includes Charles Nama, the organizer of the original 2006 event, and executive producer Kato Kaelin. The deal between FITE and Hockey Enforcers was brokered by the Los Angeles-based distribution division of Get Me Out Productions, headed by Scott Emmer.
The Ice Wars judges are made up of retired professional hockey players, all with solid reputations as enforcers. They include Frank Mark “The Animal” Bialowas, who played with the Toronto Maple Leafs of the NHL and is a Hall of Famer for the Philadelphia Phantoms; Brad Wingfield who has played with teams across Canada and the United States; and Jon “Nasty” Mirasty, who has played in several Canadian leagues and now stars in the upcoming Canadian TV show Horsey.
