Winger Spencer Machacek and defenceman Jon Blum, two of the squad's best three or four players, dropped the mitts in the midst of skating laps at the end of the session. Usually during a practice scrap two or three guys go over and break it up; this time, with two key players involved, there were 10 or 12 guys in the pile.
No one was saying afterwards what it stemmed from. Everyone was saying that it wasn't a big deal and that both Machacek, the team captain, and Blum, an alternate, had moved on.

Machacek and Blum drop the gloves at practice
Thrashers prospect Spencer Machacek fought teammate Jon Blum (NAS) at practice with the Vancouver Giants (WHL). This happened a week ago, but is still somewhat interesting.
