Video of a violent hockey fight between two youth hockey teams in Mississauga Wednesday evening is getting a lot of attention on social media.

In a video shared by Julie Koostachin, an unidentified team wearing blue and white jerseys appears to be celebrating at one end of an ice rink.

A lone player wearing a blue jersey appears to be skating toward the team when two players in white and red jerseys can be seen charging toward the player. One of them pushes the player in the blue and white jersey, causing them both to fall to the ice.

Two officials can be seen skating to the fighting players before more players in white and red jerseys go over. The rest of the players in blue and white jerseys can be seen skating over where the fight was occurring, and seconds later the brawl breaks out.

“OMFG!! Those little f—ers attacking my baby,” Koostachin wrote in her post early Thursday.

“He just wanted to celebrate with the rest of his team mates (sic) after winning this championship game.”

Videos of the incident were also shared on other Facebook and Instagram accounts, racking up tens of thousands of views.

Peel Regional Police told Global News officers were called to Iceland Arena, located on Matheson Boulevard East at Highway 403, at around 8 p.m. for a hockey fight.

A spokesperson said the fight escalated when coaches tried to break up a fight between the young players.

Police said they are not investigating further since no one was hurt, adding charges aren’t being laid.

The spokesperson added they are unaware if parents were involved in the fight.

According to the Little Native Hockey League website, the league’s 48th annual tournament was being held at the arena throughout the day.

It’s not clear what teams were involved in the fight.

Global News contacted the league for comment on Thursday, but a spokesperson declined to comment.
