Video of the Penguins Joe Vitale getting in a big fight (and possibly getting injured) against Columbus Blue Jacket James Wisniewski

Hockey is back and Joe Vitale and James Wisniewski dropped the gloves in a brutal, brutal fight in last night's preseason game.

Vitale took a couple of big bombs there and may be worse for wear.

Vitale has been a regular in the Penguins lineup for the past two seasons and was in the mix to be the fourth line center. Should he miss any time, it could spell more opportunity for guys like Dustin Jeffrey, Andrew Ebbett, Harry Zolnierczyk, Adam Payerl and Jayson Megna to make the team or even the opening night roster.

We'll continue to see how Vitale is feeling and if he'll suffer any after-effects from this bout, and it's easy to see how that could happen. Both guys weren't holding and were throwing a lot of heavy shots. p>
