The QMJHL has recently prohibited fighting, with strict penalties, including ejections and suspensions, for those involved.

This sparked discussions about whether other leagues, like the NHL, should follow suit. Jakub Lauko, a player known for his physical style, opposes the ban.
He believes it may lead to more dangerous plays with players risking minor suspensions instead. While the intent is to reduce fighting,
«I don't think it's a good idea for hockey overall,» Lauko told Boston.com on Thursday. Guys are going to hit high, hit from behind, and they know the only consequences might be a suspension of 1-2 games.»
Lauko added.
players may find ways to skirt the rules, creating a dilemma for the league. Lauko's viewpoint reflects concerns that banning fighting may not eliminate physicality but instead change how players engage in it.
