MONTREAL (AP) -Another son of hockey great Patrick Roy is facing disciplinary action for his on-ice behavior.
Frederick Roy was suspended 15 games Monday by the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League for high-sticking during the Quebec Remparts' game against the Montreal Juniors on Friday.
During a timeout, Roy, a forward with the Remparts, struck Montreal defenseman Vincent Bourgeois in the mouth.
The league made the decision after reviewing video of the incident and interviewing those involved. The video has since been posted on YouTube.
The suspension comes eight months after Roy's brother, Jonathan, was suspended for seven games by the QMJHL for participating in on-ice fight. Jonathan Roy, a goalie with the Remparts, attacked opposing goalie Bobby Nadeau during a game against the Chicoutimi Sagueneens. He is facing criminal charges.
Jonathan Roy skated the length of the ice during a brawl and barreled over Nadeau before hitting him repeatedly. He then made an obscene gesture to Chicoutimi's fans.
inister to create a committee to address the issue of gratuitous violence in hockey.
A star goalie during his NHL career, Patrick Roy had his No. 33 jersey retired by the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday night.
