Former NHLer Stan Jonathan has been charged with criminal negligence causing death after Peter Kosid of Hamilton was killed on a native reserve outside Brantford Sunday morning.
While out hunting, Jonathan, 57, a Six Nations band member, fired a round that travelled about 375 metres before hitting Kosid, who was bow-hunting on a friend’s nearby property.
According to local police, Jonathan was deer hunting and was not with, or known to, Kosid, who was shot in the back.
from Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette,
“Are you the Stan Jonathan who…?”
Yes, he’s the same 5-foot-7 skating bulldog who scored the stunning one-punch technical knockout of 6-foot-2 Canadiens defenceman Pierre Bouchard on May 21, 1978, during Game 4 of the Stanley Cup final.
Jonathan, 54, is better known for relocating Bouchard’s nose with a sledgehammer left fist than he is for any of the 91 goals he scored for the Boston Bruins. Or for his 110 assists or the other 746 penalty minutes he took in 411 NHL games from 1975-83.
Yesterday afternoon in Kahnawake, before a charity game between Bruins alumni and a local all-star team, Jonathan and Bouchard shook hands at centre ice in their team jerseys and mugged for photos in only their second meeting since that famous night at Boston Garden.
