A fight involving the former captain of the Laval Rocket creates quite a debate!

The Pittsburgh Penguins played their first exhibition game on Sunday against the Columbus Blue Jackets, and Xavier Ouellet took advantage of the opportunity by throwing down the gloves against 6-foot-4 Joshua Dunne .

The former Laval Rocket captain conceded 4 inches to the Jackets’ behemoth, but as TVA Sports’ Twitter manager rightly pointed out, that didn’t stop Ouellet from serving him three blows.

Unsurprisingly, under the tweet of this fight, many fans were very vocal about the fights in the NHL. Let’s just say that some were actually quite incisive.

“Thank you @TVASports not with you that we will decrease the culture of violence in field hockey! When will there be a top 10 of Dave Morissette’s fights?” –Maxime Simard

Ultra festive evenings will be offered to participants thanks to the collaboration of DJs who will ignite the outdoor dance floor of the Dancefloor Desjardins. Themes are proposed for each evening: Guitar Hero on September 29th, Jump Around on September 30th and Everybody Dance Now on October 1st. It’s a promise! An open-air karaoke will also be organized near St. Mark’s Park where courageous amateur singers will be able to sing along with the spectators. The lyrics of the songs will be projected on a giant screen, so 90’s nostalgics will have fun singing the hits of the era!

She reportedly asked him to stop repeatedly since it was causing her irritation:

It got to the point where I was constantly irritated by that baby oil because it attacks your pH, so you’re constantly going to get yeast infections,” she spews.
