New York Rangers rookie Matt Rempe revealed some alarming details about his NHL training shedding light on why he's emerged as one of the NHL's most feared fighters.

Rempe has already established himself as a formidable force on the ice this season, demonstrating his ability to hold his own against seasoned enforcers in the NHL. Despite recently serving a significant suspension, Rempe's confidence remains unwavering, and fans are curious about the source of his self-assurance. In a recent interview, the 6-foot-8 forward shed light on his training regimen, revealing that he has been honing his skills in Muay Thai.

«I do Muay Thai,» Rempe said. «Me and my buddy started last summer with a guy out in Calgary and we do it. I love it.»

Muay Thai, also known as Thai Boxing, originates from Thailand and encompasses a range of striking techniques using fists, elbows, knees, and shins.

Rempe's dedication to Muay Thai provides insight into why he has become the Rangers' go-to enforcer.

While the fundamentals of Muay Thai may not directly translate to hockey fights, it's likely that Rempe's training has enhanced his agility and reflexes, making him a formidable opponent when dropping the gloves. His proficiency in Muay Thai serves as a daunting warning to rival teams and their enforcers.

In just 13 games, Rempe has already left his mark in the NHL with his physical play, accumulating one goal, one assist, 54 penalty minutes, and two ejections.

And let's not overlook his expertise in Muay Thai.
