- A young hockey player has just gone viral, but for all the wrong reasons which could land him in jail.
- During a game, the player snapped and used his stick to lumberjack chop a rival player on the back and then at his head.
- The video of the game, which took place two weeks ago during a tournament in St-Bruno-de-Guigues, has gone viral on social media on Tuesday.
- The Rouyn-Noranda Aces, in the midget BB category, faced the Lumberkings of Hearst, Ontario.
- The player from the Lumberkings is the one in hot water for this brutal move:
- The incident took place during the final of the tournament.
- After the Aces scored a goal, a Lumberkings player hit an opponent on the back, which collapsed on the rink.
- The Lumberkings player has been suspended by the Disciplinary Committee for the remainder of the tournament and then for the remainder of the season, including the playoffs.
- The Hearst club is said to be looking at taking the decision into appeal.
- As for the parents of the victim, who sustained a concussion, they have informed Radio-Canada that they are considering filing a complaint with the Sûreté du Québec (police).
