Pittsburgh (KDKA)- Kevin Allen of USA Today is reporting that the NHL is “looking into” the reported NY Islanders brawl party.

The Islanders reportedly are sponsoring a promotion to have fans re-watch the Feb. 11 brawl-filled game against the Penguins.

There were 346 penalty minutes, 15 fights and 23 game suspensions following that game.

Allen had this quote from NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly, “We do not approve of the use, based on what we know.”

The Islanders website had this to say about the re-watching of the brawl, “The night of February 11, 2011 was memorable for Isles fans. Whether you were in the stands at the Coliseum or watching on TV, you were on your feet through all the ruckus cheering for the Islanders to beat the Penguins. On August 19th, MSG Plus will re-air the game and we want the fans to join us for a viewing party at Champions. Same awesome deal as usual, raffles, prizes and more. RSVP now and remember to get there early and get a table with your friends. Stay tuned to #Isles and #IslesMeetup for all the latest and for more information.”

I would be very surprised if the NHL allows this “party” to take place.
