Riley Emmerson vs Francis Lessard Fight Video

Only 2:36 into Sundays game Riley Emmerson of the Rochester Americans dropped the gloves and exchanged about a dozen punches with Francis Lessard of the San Antonio Rampage.  Each player kept their helmets on the entire time, more than likely due to the fact that AHL League President and CEO David Andrews was in attendance at the game.  Fighting in hockey is set to become a topic of discussion over the summer.

I’ll have more on the topic of fighting in the next day or two.

Jordan Henry and Adam Keefe exchanged a few punches in the second period as well, but we weren’t able to get any footage – wouldn’t have been worth the upload time anyways.
