NHL tough guy Ben Eager is facing charges after an alleged fight at a Toronto bar.

The Edmonton Oiler and his brother Michael are both facing assault charges after an incident involving a doorman.

It happened at The Quail pub on Yonge Street in the Rosedale area, around 1 a.m., Saturday.

Jennine Lombardo, general manager at The Quail and Firkin Pub, told CityNews the fight began inside the bar and then moved outdoors. The doorman allegedly had to hold up a patio chair to shield himself from the attack.

"We are used to dealing with young professionals. Last night stopped staff dead in their tracks and is not typical of what happens at our establishment. Once the fight started, service ended immediately. Our staff was in shock. And we are concerned for our door man who was brutally attacked and hurt." said Lombardo.

She said the fight was caught on security video, which will be handed over to police on Sunday.

The doorman suffered cuts to the face and was taken to hospital by ambulance.

Eager and his brother each face charges of assault, assault with bodily harm and assault with weapon.

Eager is known in the NHL as a tough guy. One of his most notable incidents involved a sucker punch on Toronto Maple Leaf Colby Armstrong for which he was suspended. Eager was also docked $13,000 after he smashed an HD camera with his hockey stick while in the penalty box during a game against Vancouver in December.

Sound's like he's got a lot of pent up rage.
He must be Eager for the NHL to start up again.

If he is most notable for a sucker punch, I wouldn't necessarily classify him as one of the NHL's tough guys. More like a feline.

I know... you're right. I'm so sorry, I [trucking] hate this job. I don't want to be the one to pass judgement, decide who gets in. [Spit] makes me sick to my stomach, I get the runs from the stress. It's not cause you're not hot, I would love to tap that [booty]. I would tear that [booty] up. I can't let you in cause you're old as [ducks]. For this club, you know, not for the earth.

Kassian was just a kid and kids do stupid things. I don't think it was 'badass' but crap happens.

Eager is in his late-20s and should be able to control himself better.

But you can spin that again as: you're a professional and a grown man, or young adult, whatever, so act like one.

I see the hypocrisy on this page though; Kassian does it, nbd. Eager does it and he's just a piece of trash. Then again people were already against him after what he did to Daniel.

Eager is a good 4th liner, one of the best in the league.. if he keeps his calm on and off the ice.

People have been against him since what he did to Bieksa back in 2009 ... and there's a LLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG list of incidents where he was a complete idiot on the ice.

Probably foolish on my part but I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt until the police report and video footage is published,at which
point I will then pass judgement on him and myself for my doubt theory :picard:

Except one was a one on one fight involving two young guys who probably had too much to drink.

The other was a two on one that allegedly involved some sort of weapon, and ended with someone being taken away in an ambulance.

So yea, a little different there.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

If there's one thing worse than the hypocrites it's the people so quick to compare 2 different situations and then spin in a circle blathering about how everyone is a hypocrite.

Fighting off the ice isn't good no matter what the situation but there's a world of difference between someone who should know better and someone who still hasn't grown in all their pubes yet.
