Former Chicago Blackhawks star Patrick Kane has shared his thoughts on a recent scuffle between Detroit Red Wings teammates Ben Chiarot and Lucas Raymond during practice.

The incident, caught on camera by Jeanna Trotman of WXYZ Detroit, has sparked discussion after frustration spilled over during the Red Wings' training session.

Chiarot and Raymond got into a heated argument, resulting in a brief fight before other teammates stepped in to break it up.

This happened following the Red Wings' disappointing 7-3 loss to the Buffalo Sabres, extending their losing streak to six games and knocking them out of playoff contention.



Reflecting on the incident, veteran forward David Perron expressed approval of the passion shown by his teammates, emphasizing the desire to find solutions and improve moving forward.

Patrick Kane shared Perron's view, seeing the confrontation as a potentially positive sign. "I don't think it's a bad thing," Kane remarked. "I'd be more worried if we were all smiles and everything's okay. I think it's good to get a little frustrated as long as you handle it right."


Kane highlighted the potential for frustration to fuel positive energy, whether in practice or in upcoming games. The incident highlights the intensity and competitiveness within NHL teams as they aim for success on the ice.
