It's tough to participate in a hockey practice without any sticks. Vegas Golden Knights forward Jonathan Marchessault found that out on Saturday.

Marchessault headed out to the ice with empty gloves and soon noticed every stick he owns was taped together and laying in the middle of the rink.

He went right after the suspected prankster.

To absolutely no one's surprise, this was the work of goalie Marc-Andre Fleury.

For the practical jokes he has pulled over his 13 seasons with the Pittsburgh Penguins and now, in his second season in Vegas, Fleury's reputation as an imp is well-known.

Saturday's stunt with Marchessault's gear was just the latest chapter in what is becoming a legendary book.
