22. Steve Downie vs. Akim Aliu
Hockey’s most notorious hazing incident is still shocking to read about, even to this day. Downie and Aliu played for the Windsor Spitfires in the Ontario Hockey League. First of all, Aliu’s senior teammates allegedly ordered him to strip naked and stuff himself into a bus bathroom during initiation.
He refused to the fury of his teammates. Weeks later, captain Downie cross-checked new teammate Aliu in the mouth during practice and left the ice. He then came back and started a fight with the youngster. In the end, the Spitfires suspended Downie for five games and ordered him to take anger management class.
