Is fighting legal in the sport of hockey?

In European hockey and IIHF championships fighting is punished by a major penalty, ejection from the game and a suspension for the next game. In college hockey I understand fighting is also punishable by a game ejection but I don't know if a next game suspension is given. In the NHL, North American minor leagues, and Canadian major junior hockey fighting carries a five minute major penalty. However, in these leagues, despite the penalties, fighting is somewhat encouraged and is viewed as part of the game. Many commentators such HNIC's Don Cherry glorify the fighting aspect of the pro game.
