Incident vs. Sherwood[edit | edit source]

In March 2013, in the final game of the season, a brawl erupted when, as handshakes were taking place, three players from the Sherwood Falcons crossed centre ice and charged the Aces' players.[2] The Aces had just won the game to advance to the league final. Eight players and two coaches were suspended beginning the next season.
