Painchaud gets into a fight

So I'm tooling around the internet tonight, doing such things as feeling positively ancient by realizing that former Thrashers prospect Brian Pothier is (egads!) 30 years old, and I see on the Chicago v. Milwaukee live box score that Chad Painchaud has received a fighting major against one Kyle Wilson.

I think most readers are familiar with Painchaud, but if you're not, let's just say I doubt he was a willing combatant. (Can you be a glamor forward without production?) With a quick check of Google, I was surprised to dig up that he had several fighting majors in junior, however, he was on a really bad Sarnia Sting team, and bad teams often get into more fights just to get something going. So that increased his numbers higher than natural. Tonight's box score also shows that Scott Lehman jumped in to help, getting a third-man-in penalty. This is the "keep my buddy from getting his ass kicked" penalty. Lehman is a good kid, and rightly or wrongly, will always fight if needed. He's got the very crooked nose to prove it.

Perhaps there will be YouTube of this whole event later.

Both Chad and Scott are great players. They came to Gladiator land for a few games this year. They both did very well last year,Iwish we had them back while we are healing up in Gladiator land.
