For anyone who watched the Don Cherry movie on CBC it was exactly the same scenario. He was a goon in the minors attending the Leafs camp & he took out this kid who was the Leafs #1 draft pick in practise & the GM went balistic. Sent him to the minors the next day.
Aaron Ward on tsn told a story yesterday about Lessard in a Rangers(?) practice. He took 2 separate runs at players trying to injure them, so instead of pulling him aside and talking to him, Ward charged him and flipped him off his skates. apparently he got the message.
