Quebec Minor Hockey Coaches Suspended for Life

The governing body of hockey in the Gatineau, Quebec region has laid down the law for two minor hockey coaches involved in a post-game altercation back on November 20.

Two of the three coaches involved in a post-game brawl have been suspended – get this – for life.

The incident occurred at Le Centre Slush Puppie in Gatineau following a U-15 game between the Jets 1 La Lièvre and Remparts Gatineau. One male suffered injuries in the fight and was transported to hospital with non-threatening injuries.

A committee put together to invoke appropriate discipline following the incident came to its strong decision in late-November. The two coaches will no longer be able to coach minor hockey anywhere across Canada.

Local police continue to investigate the incident in question, but to this point no official charges have been laid.

“Hockey Canada will recognize and enforce that disciplinary penalty, subject to any appeal rights that the individuals may have,” Hockey Canada said in a statement to the CBC.
