The Toronto Maple Leafs turbulent season continued with a scuffle during Friday's practice.

Phil Kessel allowed his emotion to spill over during an in-practice wrestling match with first-year Leaf forward David Booth. 

With the team's recent struggles, it's no surprise to see things finally boiling over for a team that has been struggling to close the season out on a respectable note. 

It didn't appear to be a friendly exchange, as teammates reportedly had to separate the pair during the unpleasantry.

Toronto is on the verge of their worst season in recent memory, having already been eliminated from the playoffs and are serious contenders in the race to 2015's likely first-overall draft pick, Connor McDavid. 

They currently sit in the league's 27th spot with seven games remaining in their regretable season.
