    Default Brutal Canadian youth hockey beating leads parent to question culture of hockey

    After what can only be described as a "brutal beating" of their son during a Canadian youth hockey game and the perceived ensuing missteps by authorities, Wes and Julie Major have gone public to CBC News with video of what they consider an assault.

    15. Basically the forward for one team gave the goalie a snow job. A guy from the other team ripped his helmet off and punched him about a dozen times. Gave him a concussion, broken nose, etc. The league did little and when the parents went to the cops they were basically told "it's part of the game".

    Dino Ciccarelli spent a day in jail for an on-ice assault. This issue has got to be even more complex because the players are minors. Maybe the parents are trying to clean up the culture or even trying to get the police involved as an arrest would lead to better chances in potential lawsuit against the youth league? Either way a lot of eyebrows will be raised when it comes to how youth leagues/refs call the games and run the leagues.

    Disgusting. I'd have no problem with the kid being charged and the parents have every right to question the culture.

    Snowing the goalie is not good form, but it deserves no retribution whatsoever. Especially not a dozen punches to the face. That's just fucked up.


    The NHL better take notice. Because these teens are watching and absorbing a lot of this shit from the big league. So what? Your goalie got a little snow in the face? Grow the fuck up and move on.

    Our hockey culture will only get more violent too. I don't see it getting better.

    agreed. the scary thing is a lot of people are like "well that's what happens when you snow the goalie". It's one thing to shove the guy or pop him once in the back of the head so he understands that you don't do that. But that was flat out assualt. And the league did nothing. The scarier thing is I'm not at all shocked. Hockey is run by friggin cavemen for the most part in the junior ranks. That kid (the puncher) should never play another game in his life.
