The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League has suspended Quebec Remparts coach Patrick Roy for five games for his role in a weekend brawl.
The league said today that Roy is being suspended for “prejudicial conduct” related to his team’s scrap with the Chicoutimi Sagueneens on Saturday….
Jonathan Roy was suspended for seven games for barrelling into the Chicoutimi goaltender and pummelling him with repeated blows.
Update 2:52pm ET: From Marty Henwood at Hockey.com,
When it comes to the Roy family, apparently the apple doesn’t fall all that far from the tree.
A piece of friendly advice to the Roy clan? Time to put in a call to the doc and seek a little anger management, provided the caller can stay on the phone long enough prior to dropping an f-bomb and hanging up.
Update 5:02pm ET: From the CP,
Quebec’s director of public prosecutions has launched a criminal investigation into the junior hockey brawl that netted suspensions for former NHL great Patrick Roy and his son, among others.
The province ordered the investigation after the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League suspended Roy, the Quebec Remparts coach, for five games for his part in an ugly brawl involving his son.
Update 6:38pm ET: From CJAD,
“I certainly regret not taking better control of the situation,” said Roy.
Roy did not respond to suggestions he egged his son on, but says he accepts the league’s ruling.
“My goal is to never make this sort of mistake again,” he said.
