Patrick Roy’s son faces assault charge

SAGUENAY, Quebec ” The son of Hall of Fame goaltender Patrick Roy has been charged with assaulting a rival during a Major Junior Hockey League playoff game last March.

Quebec Remparts goaltender Jonathan Roy, 19, faces one count of assault against Chicoutimi Sagueneens goalie Bobby Nadeau.

The single charge was filed Thursday in Saguenay, where the brawl occurred.

In a fracas that was replayed countless times across the Canada, Jonathan Roy skated the length of the ice and pummeled Nadeau, who made no attempt to fight back.

It was the most notable of a series of fights between the heated Quebec league rivals.

Patrick Roy, the Remparts’ coach and general manager who played for the Colorado Avalanche, was suspended for five games and his son for seven over the melee.
