The Vancouver Canucks ECHL affiliate, the Victoria Salmon Kings, have managed to end up in a police situation because of this incident:
Robin Gomez of the Victoria Salmon Kings has been suspended indefinitely by the ECHL after he punched Chris Ferraro, a star forward for the Las Vegas Wranglers, and knocked him to the ice during a game at the Save-on-Foods Memorial Centre last Saturday.
Ferraro hit the back of his head on the ice, causing a gash that produced a large pool of blood. The cut required eight stitches to close, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
Obviously not the first time professional hockey in BC ends up the focus of a police investigation (flashback to Brashear/McSorley, Moore/Bertuzzi).
So how does a police department investigate an on-ice incident?
Vancouver recalled Nathan McIver from Manitoba this past Tuesday, concerned with a possible injury to Alex Edler. Edler ended up able to play (scoring the GWG in a shootout that night, no less) and so McIver was shipped right back to the Moose on Wednesday.
Today, McIver has been recalled yet again… and Jason Jaffray has been sent back to the Moose.
