Scott Schoneck is a district sales manager for Frito-Lay Canada. He lives in Calgary. He sees to it that the Wal-Marts and Safeways across Alberta are supplied with the salty snacks they need. It’s a good job, and he does it well.

It wasn't long ago that he made his living on the ice. As a teenager, Schoneck played in Moose Jaw. At the end, Las Vegas. There were, of course, a couple stops in between.

And almost 11 years ago, he found himself in the same situation that Florida Marlins pitcher Chris Volstad did Wednesday night.

He got into a fight with Nyjer Morgan.

“Some good memories,” Schoneck said with a chuckle over the phone on Friday. “Yeah, we had a little bit of a dance.”

Their tussle came Oct. 1, 1999, at the Regina Agridome. So says the HockeyFights.com entry from Morgan’s brief stay as a third- and fourth-line winger in the Western Hockey League.
