Youth coach faces charges for tripping player in handshake line

By Adam Gretz | Hockey writer

Back in June we passed along the ridiculous video (shown above) of a youth hockey coach tripping an opposing player following a tournament game (a game the coach's team actually won) in British Columbia that resulted in the player suffering a broken wrist.

Following the trip, he was then reportedly seen pointing his middle finger at the crowd.

On Thursday, 40-year-old Martin Tremblay was charged with two counts of assault for the trip.

"The two complainants are two youths who allegedly were intentionally tripped by Mr. Tremblay. Both charges arise out of the same incident," said Neil MacKenzie, a spokesman for provincial Crown prosecutors via the CBC.

He is scheduled to appear in court again on Sept. 13.
