It was like Monday Night Raw on ice when Tampa Bay Lightning star J.T. Brown started pummeling Nashville defenseman Ryan Ellis after a big hit. Brown got ejected, then apparently knocked a phone out of a fan's hand.

One major problem with Brown's aggressiveness: the fan was recording it all, and TMZ got the footage.

The fan told TMZ that he's not pressing charges against Brown but he does hope he gets a new iPhone out of the deal because the screen on his got cracked.

Brown is from Burnsville, Minnesota, and he helped lead Minnesota Duluth to a national championship in 2011.

Here's the video of the brawl that got Brown ejected.
