Tage Thompson and Chatfield drop gloves (video)

Despite it being the pre-season, and despite having just signed a massive 50 million dollar contract with the Buffalo Sabres after a breakout season last year, Tage Thompson showed he is still willing to get his hands dirty and come to the defence of a fellow teammate.

After Carolina defensemen Jalen Chatfield landed a huge hit on Thompson's teammate, Thompson immediately dropped the gloves and squared off with Chatfield as seen in the video below.



Never having been a playing to take many penalties, and especially coming on the heels of signing such a big contract this offseason, Sabres fans are likely holding their breath hoping this kind of play from Thompson doesn't continue.


In the salary cap era you pay big money for playmakers not fighters.
