The first rule of hockey fight club

When Aaron and Derek Boogaard take a wannabe tough guy to school, they usually do it on the ice.

The venue switched to the classroom this week when the Boogaard brothers - who make the Hansons of Slapshot fame look like lightweights - staged their inaugural hockey fighting camp at a Regina training centre.

The clinic included more 30 registered players from age 12 to 18 who signed on to receive a crash course from two of the toughest customers in the game.

Well, I guess if you're hellbent on being a fighter, whether it's occasional, like Jarome Iginla, or your raison d'etre, like Boogard, it's not a bad idea to learn how to throw and take a punch without hurting yourself. Not the sort of idea I'd have come up with, but if the parents are okay with it, c'est la vie, go nuts.
