Possible Criminal Charges in Youth Hockey Game

From the Canadian Press, more information on the Triple-A hockey brawl involving 8-year-old players last weekend:

A video recording of the fight was being reviewed by police, who are expected to decide as early as Wednesday whether to lay criminal charges amid allegations that one of the adult coaches spit in the face of his cross-ice counterpart.

Police are alleging that when a small fight broke out between players on the ice, both coaches sent in more players from the bench to join in.

The Ontario Minor Hockey Association began its own investigation and was being assisted by the Niagara Falls Minor Hockey Association and the Greater Toronto Hockey League.

“Which group was the first to act, (and) which was the next to react, doesn’t make any difference,” said GTHL president John Gardner.  “For adults to get into a situation like this . . . it’s not good for hockey and we’re not going to tolerate it.”
