Youth hockey coach investigated for tripping player in handshake line
A youth hockey coach in Vancouver is being investigated after he was accused of tripping a teenage player during a post-tournament handshake last week.
A youth hockey coach in Vancouver is being investigated after he was accused of tripping a teenage player during a post-tournament handshake following his team's 5-4 win over the Richmond Steel at the University of British Columbia campus last week.
The incident can be seen in the video posted below from CTV, and it takes place right around the 14-second mark.
The coach of the UBC Hornets, 40-year-old Martin Tremblay, was taken into custody but was eventually released.
According to CTV an investigation is still ongoing, and one of the players that fell to the ice as a result of the incident suffered a broken wrist according to the Steel's manager.
The coach was also reported to have been pointing his middle finger at the crowd after the incident, which the CTV website has footage of taking place.
There is, however, no footage (and few details) as to what actually happened during the game or during the handshake line to result in the incident.
It's hard to imagine anything that would justify a 40-year-old man tripping a teenager like that.
