SAGUENAY, Que. (CP) - Police are investigating a claim that former NHL all-star goalie Patrick Roy was involved in a shoving match following a major junior hockey game Friday in Chicoutimi, north of Quebec City.
Police say Roy, who both owns and coaches the Quebec City Remparts of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, was accused of shoving a representative of the opposing team.
"We were called to the scene to register an assault complaint against Mr. Roy," said Bruno Cormier, a spokesperson for Saguenay police.
"There was work done by our officers with witnesses of the incident and it all will be handed over to the office of criminal investigations."
According to police, the incident happened after about 50 fans of the Chicoutimi Sagueneens prevented the visiting Remparts players from boarding their team bus after a Friday night game.
