Sergei Fedorov, who moved from NHL to KHL past summer, got into a fight with Roman Derlyuk to avenge Derlyuk's dirty hit on Sergei's younger brother, Fedor.
After the game 23-year-old Derlyuk couldn't beleive he fought 40-year-old Sergei Fedorov himself.
"Fedorov is a great player, I remember watching him play when I was a kid. I'd even call myself his fan. And if someone told me that I'd ever fight Fedorov I would... I would... never beleive. It just happened that he went after me, one of his punches reached my head and I... Of course I'd never start a fight against such player as Sergei Fedorov... never," said Derlyuk to Alyona Shilova of vhockey.ru after the game.
Sergei Fedorov is playing for Metallurg Magnitogorsk on a line with his younger brother Fedor. In 36 games Sergei scored 8 goals and recorded 16 assists. His plus/minus rating is +23. It's Metallurg's best and KHL's 3rd best result.
