St. Louis Blues defenseman Barret Jackman once got into a fight with Colorado Avalanche forward Jarome Iginla that was more memorable for what happened afterwards.

Both were sent to the penalty box at the end of the first period. When Jackman began doing his time in the second period — the penalty time carried over — he made a new friend.

A wide-eyed young fan who probably had no idea what was going on got his attention. Jackman shifted over, had a mini staring contest and gave her a few waves.

It was a pretty funny contrast to what transpired on ice only a few minutes before.
