Watch ‘fight’ between LNAH’s Francis Lessard and Sebastien Laferriere turn into epic stare down (VIDEO)

In short, the LNAH is a fighting league with hockey mixed in as it's not odd to see numerous players with 100-plus penalty minutes in a season.

That's why it was so odd to see Francis Lessard (346 PIMs in 115 NHL games played) and Sebastien Laferriere (966 PIMs in 159 LNAH games played) "square off" on Feb. 24 and decide to engage in a staring contest rather than actual fisticuffs:

Ahh, brings back memories of Aaron Downey's and Brad Norton's epic standoff.

Even the refs were getting impatient waiting around for something. Fortunately, since it is the LNAH after all, the two did throw down mere minutes after serving their minors; and the arena DJ was wise to hold off on playing LL Cool J's "Mama Said Knock You Out" once again.
