Ten former NHLers tell their tale of fighting Bob Probert

He was one of the most feared and well-respected tough guys in NHL history, and those who were brave enough to drop the gloves with Bob Probert tell the story in a new book.

Mike Hartman: “My father watched the fight from the penalty box where he was taking pictures of the Red Wings for a special project they needed. My father was the team photographer. When I played, my father would watch from the seats, except that night he was in the home penalty box. After our fight, Bob was sent to the penalty box with a cut above his forehead. Then Bob turned to my father and said, ‘I’m going to hurt your son tonight.’ “
