Downey added an element of toughness to the Red Wings with his willingness to fight. Prior to him joining the Red Wings, the Red Wings had been last in the NHL in fighting majors. The team had six for the 2005–06 NHL season, and 10 during the 2006–07 NHL season. Through February 2008, Downey accounted for nine of the team’s 19 fights. He was often praised by head coach Mike Babcock for his willingness to stick up for teammates and his positive attitude in the dressing room.

The two fought late in the first period and came together again early in the third.

After the fight, Stars color commentator Daryl Reaugh coined the short-lived nickname “Aaron ‘One punch and he’s’ Downey.” On the flip side, Downey became a YouTube sensation after his 16 April 2006 non-fight with Ottawa Senator Brad Norton. The two squared off with fists raised for forty seconds before being escorted to the penalty box without having made contact or even thrown a punch.
