It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
There are dozens of professional hockey leagues where the careers of has been’s go to die. This league resides in Quebec and is known to the locals as the Ligue Nord-Américaine de Hockey. It might as well be known as the League North American de Hacks because that’s exactly what it is. Fans attend games basically to see guys skate around kill each other.
So not to anyone’s surprise was this video from a February 24th game Cornwall and HC Carvena de Sorel-Tracy when Francis Lessard vs. Sebastien Laferriere dropped the gloves.
Lessard is a 33-year old washed up goon who has made his career on pounding opponents. His opponent in this fistacuffs is a five-year vet of the LNAH. Laferriere, might only be 25, but the writing is on the wall for his career.
The two decided that it was their time to tango and then they partook in the worst fight hockey (non) fight anyone has ever seen. Or, as some call it, figure skating.

Last weekend, a fight broke out in the North American Hockey League between Cornwall River Kings defenseman Francis Lessard and Sorel-Tracy HC Carvena forward Sébastien Laferrière, but ironically, neither player threw a single punch.
Lessard and Laferrière were allowed to skate around for almost a full minute, circling each other while to lure the other player close enough...
This would absolutely be the worst fight in the history of professional hockey…if a punch was actually thrown. Since this was more like a display from figure skating’s doubles division, I’m not sure what to call this.
This, eh, exhibition took place in the North American Hockey League between Francis Lessard of the Cornwall RiverKings and Sebastien Laferrier of the Sorel...
How many times do you see this? Francis Lessard and Sebastien Laferriere of the NAHL both turned a hockey fight into an epic one minute staring contest in this bizzare moment during a game between the Cornwall River Kings and HC Carvena de Sorel-Tracy."the two did throw down mere minutes after serving their minors" - Puck Daddy.Related:Aaron Downey vs Brad Norton
Welcome to the Ligue Nord-Américaine de Hockey, known as a goon hockey league in Quebec where fans come to see punches and fighters come to extend careers. Donald Brashear finished his hockey career in this league. So imagine our surprise to watch this video from a February 24 game between Cornwall and HC Carvena de Sorel-Tracy where two guys decide to drop the gloves for a brawl...
When I first saw headlines for this video and read that people were calling it the worst hockey “fight” of all time, I was intrigued and had to see what it was all about. In this age of hyperbole, there’s no way it could be as bad as those people said, right? Well, turns out it was worse than anyone could imagine.
When you think of hockey fights, you think of dropped gloves...
