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).
