Youth Hockey Coach Assaults Young Player [VIDEO]

A junior ice hockey coach has been sentenced to 15 days in jail for tripping a young player during a post-game handshake.

Martin Tremblay, 48, from British Columbia, Canada, swept out the leg of a youngster while the teams were going through the traditional hockey ritual of lining up to congratulate each other after the match. Two players were hurt during the incident, and I could not imagine if I were there how mad I would have gotten.

Tremblay prepared to hear his sentence on Wednesday. He pleaded guilty to two counts of assault and said that he was off his medication for depression. The crowd wanted him to be fined. The defense wanted to suspend him. Instead, to everyone’s surprise, he was sent to jail.
