Who says there's no fighting among hockey teammates? Don't tell that to Dustin Stevenson and Garrett Ross. The two Washington Capitials prospects slugged it out during Wednesday's scrimmage, right after Group B scored to take a 4-1 lead. Russian Machine Never Breaks describes the scene.

In the third period of Wednesday's Development Camp scrimmage, Capitals prospects Dustin Stevenson and Garrett Ross dropped the gloves. The fight, which lasted about 20 seconds, started after Aaron Schmit scored for Group B, giving them a 4-1 advantage. The 6′ 5″ Stevenson landed a majority of the punches, but Ross - a veteran of 24 OHL fights - landed the hardest punch, a sharp haymaker that elicited "oohs" and "aahs" from the crowd.

At first glance, you're probably wondering why two teammates are fighting each other. But if you think about it, they're both competing for a roster spot, and since this is hockey, fighting ability comes into play. In the end, nobody got hurt and a fun time was had by all. Isn't that what it's all about?
