Former Canadien Mario Tremblay in court for DUI charge
Accused of refusing breathalyzer test
Former hockey star and NHL coach Mario Tremblay faces a court date next week on a drinking-and-driving charge.
The ex-Montreal Canadien is accused of having refused to submit to a breathalyzer test in January in suburban Mascouche, Que.
He pleaded not-guilty on June 18 and his next court appearance is scheduled for Aug. 28 at Mascouche's municipal courthouse.
The 56-year-old was a gritty right-winger who scored 258 goals before his career was cut short by injury.
Later, he coached the Habs during a two-year stint behind the bench best remembered for the feud that chased Patrick Roy out of Montreal.
Although Tremblay had a winning record as a coach, the team was unsuccessful after its star goaltender was traded and Tremblay was fired soon thereafter.
