Development camps are usually viewed as a great time to bond with new teammates and impress your professional club, in hopes of making a strong impression which could be beneficial down the road.
That wasn’t the case for two players in the San Jose Sharks organization, as an old-fashioned punchup broke out.

If you look closely, Zachary Gallant (teal jersey) appears to get the best of Lean Bergmann, with a referee breaking up the affair when both combatants hit the ice.
Bergmann signed a three-year entry-level contract with the Sharks in May, after scoring 20 goals in 50 games with the Iserlohn Roosters of Germany’s Deutsche Eishockey Liga.
Gallant posted 13 goals and 25 points with the OHL’s Peterborough Petes.
Fighting is being phased out of hockey and it seems unlikely either player made a strong impression on the Sharks’ staff in attendance. At least for the fight, anyways.
