Canadiens defenceman P.K. Subban involved in another scuffle at practice

MONTREAL - Add another practice scuffle to P.K. Subban's resume.

The Montreal Canadiens' talented young defenceman was involved in his fourth skirmish with a teammate this season at practice Thursday.

After altercations with Tomas Plekanec, Mathieu Darche and Louis Leblanc, the latest spat came against David Desharnais.

Subban dumped his teammate to the ice and as Desharnais got up, he cross-checked and slashed Subban.

Other players stepped before the confrontation got out of hand.

After practice, Andrei Kostitsyn quipped that everyone wants to fight Subban, adding that every spat at Habs practice seems to involve the hard-hitting defenceman.

Josh Gorges defended Subban, calling the string of scuffles involving him a mere coincidence.

Habs coach Randy Cunneyworth said disputes happen because Subban practises as hard as he plays in games.

But Cunneyworth added that he wouldn't want to see things get much more intense than they did Thursday.
