The legal saga involving Canadian NHL player Shane Doan and MP Denis Coderre will be back in Montreal Superior Court on Sept. 7.
The two men are each suing the other for defamation in relation to the events of Dec. 13, 2005 during a hockey game between the Montreal Canadiens and Phoenix Coyotes at the Bell Centre in Montreal.
During the game, Doan, a Coyotes forward, is alleged to have referred to four officials as “f—-ing Frenchmen.” That night, Doan was penalized after linesman Michel Cormier accused Doan of making racist comments towards him and his colleagues.
