Pee Wee Hockey Coach Gets 15 Days In Jail For This Handshake Stunt


(Photo: YouTube)

48-year-old Martin Tremblay of Vancouver has been sentenced to 15 days in jail and 12 months of probation, according to the National Post, after tripping a child during a postgame handshake.

The resulting crash toppled two children, ages 10 and 13, the latter injuring his wrist as a result.

“The tripping of the boys was akin to a cowardly sucker punch on an unsuspecting victim,” Richmond provincial court Judge Patrick Chen condemned.

Local reports indicate Tremblay had been antagonizing the 13-year-old throughout the game, calling him “twinkle toes” and insulting his skating ability to the point the child was in tears.

After being tripped, the child reportedly got up and tried to swing his hockey stick at the coach, starting a minor brawl. Tremblay left the ice after flipping his middle finger to the crowd.

Here’s video of the trip:

Tremblay’s attorney says his client has paid dearly for the incident, losing his wife and a number of construction contracts since originally pleading guilty back in November.

“I think we can take away that adults get carried away with minor hockey and the intensity, it’s way too serious,” attorney Bob Bellows remarked. “He put in years and years coaching hockey, he put in years and years as a scout master, and that’s all over because of one incident when he was off his antidepressants for three weeks.”

But the judge wasn’t buying it: “Win or lose, this was just a game…This was the last place anyone would have expected an assault to take place, and the very last place one would have expected an adult to assault a child.”

Wow never heard about this, what a douche

I play hockey 1-2 times a week and I had to tell a couple parents to knock off the crazy talk as they were screaming at their kids from the benches how to skate or shoot when we play drop ins with the kids.

This is a long shot, but do you know if that outdoor rink in Denver is still open? I played there a bunch when I lived in CO. That was my favourite rink to play at in Denver.

We have one at Denver Country club, one in longmont a little smaller than normal but has boards. Do you remember where abouts in Denver?

Most of the outdoor skating here is done on lakes and ponds in the mountains. Denver stays too warm for freezing to take hold.

I love skating outdoors as that is how I started, something about jeans and sweatshirt hockey brings me back to 8 yrs old again.

I'm pretty sure it was the country club. It had a something like tarps over the ice that went with the sun, so the goalies weren't blinded.

I was only 10-13 when I lived there, so I am not much help outside of where I lived in C.Springs.

15 days? Thats it? Should have been twice that. Who cares what 'damages' he incurred since. You reap what you sow.

Re: Pee Wee Hockey Coach Gets 15 Days In Jail For This Handshake Stunt


The tripping coach may have coached one of the kids (squirts) that recently tripped a losing opponent locally during the traditional post game ceremony - The NFL has long arms and roots after decades of playing "butcher" hockey in small, unique rinks/boxes where the entertainment is in the corners and around the crease instead of skating on real sheets that require more skill and real endurance. In the end, now it is all about gore, publicity.

Anyone out there seen a pond hockey game? In a larger metro area (2,500,000) with hundreds of rinks (about 20 in one recreation area plus many, many lakes with rinks and pumps for flooding during the night by families), you cannot even get a room within a 75 miles if there is tournament nearby during the period. - No raising, banging and a very traditional goal with a narrow, very low slot to get a goal and basically, 6 on 6 because goulies (local term) do not skate or handle well.

Criminal Charges and Conviction for "Bad Sportsmanship" that resulted in nothing more than some bruised egos?

Absurd!

Really? Bad sportsmanship? If he did that to a "kid" walking down the sidewalk is that no biggie? And there was a physical injury to the child and no telling how much psychological damage. The adults are there to teach the kids how to play the game and how to play it the "right" way not be a thug and take on someone half your size via a chicken chit sneak attack and then flip off the crowd afterward.

He wouldnt need a jail sentence here. The hospital stay would suffice. As it should be. Only a puss would pick on a kid.

I have gotten bashed online before for saying this.

But professional hockey should not allow fighting at all. If you pulled that crap in any other sport you would be ejected, for the season.

But in hockey it is sort of encouraged, like part of the game. Zero reason for it, and I think something like that can trickle all the way down into pee wee leagues and sit in the back of everyone's mind.

Why? Remember this is a union sport. If it was an issue, it would be brought up by the union. Why should any average citizen have a say in what these professionals do? I don't believe they are required to fight, and it's not like it's a fight till someone is KO'ed.
Besides, any other sport.....is NOT hockey...period.

They should take away the hockey and leave the fighting.
