It's been quite a while since he was a member of the Vancouver Canucks organization, but 52-year-old Donald Brashear is back playing semi-professional hockey, suiting up in the Quebec-based LNAH.

Brashear, who appeared in over 1,000 games in the National Hockey League was back to his fighting ways in a game recently, dropping the mitts for a heavyweight tilt.

The former NHLer threw his gloves to the ice to battle his opponent, who also happened to be an ex-NHL enforcer, Brett Gallant, a veteran of four games with the New York Islanders during the 2013-14 season.

Gallant and Brashear threw multiple strong blows during the fight. Brashear had Gallant up against the glass, but the latter was able to break loose and ended up taking down the former Canuck, as can be seen in the video below.
