If there’s one thing the CHL Top Prospects Game has ironically been known for, it’s fighting.

In a contest featuring 40 of major junior’s most skilled players, Dylan McIlrath got famous that way, as did Tom Wilson. So maybe Darnell Nurse shouldn’t have been taken aback when he was challenged by Curtis Lazar of the Edmonton Oil Kings in January. Not only did Lazar give up four inches to Nurse, but the two are buddies.
