Counting down the days until the 2015-16 season with a look at last season's fisticuffs

Russell LaBounty-USA TODAY Sports

31 - Number of days remaining until the 2015-16 season. But it's also...

...the number of fighting majors taken by the Caps last year, the seventh-highest total in the League. Leading the way for the Caps was, unsurprisingly, Tom Wilson, whose 12 majors were tied for the sixth-most in the League (and his 172 penalty minutes ranking fourth).

Those fights also helped the Caps rack up the seventh-highest PIM total overall, with 857 penalty minutes over the course of the season - an average of 10:27 a game.
