Video: Paxton Leroux drops the gloves with Sabres prospect Justin Kea

Sep 6, 2013, 6:05 PM EDT

The return of National Hockey League rookie camps has brought back one of the most polarizing aspects of the game, and that is fighting.

On Friday, Paxton Leroux, a noted pugilist during his days in the Ontario Hockey League and now taking part in the Traverse City Prospects Tournament with the New York Rangers, dropped the gloves with Buffalo Sabres prospect Justin Kea.

The fight occurred after Kea threw a dangerous hit from behind on a Rangers player during a play for the puck along the corner boards.

    The outcome, Sabres won in overtime 6-5. Zadorov with a PPG and the winner in overtime. Baptiste had a great game. Linberg from the Rangers had a hattrick. It was a good game, nice energy but the Sabres blew a 5-3 lead with 8 minutes left in the 3rd, thankfully Zadorov fired a low point shot and won it making the Sabres 2-0.
