Roy's son bares knuckles in QMJHL brawl
The ugly rivalry between the QMJHL's Quebec Remparts and Chicoutimi Saguenéens got a little uglier on Saturday.
But it was Quebec head coach Patrick Roy's son, Jonathan Roy, one of three netminders for the Remparts, who wound up looking ugliest.
With the Remparts behind 7-1 at the end of the second frame of a playoff game, a brawl broke out that saw Roy skate down the ice to fight Saguenéens goalie Bobby Nadeau.
Roy escaped the two officials that were trying to hold him back and caught up to Nadeau, who refused to retaliate while Roy punched him several times.
He then instigated a second fight with Chicoutimi defenceman Sébastien Rioux, a display of aggression that recalled his father's infamous fights with Mike Vernon and Chris Osgood.
The teams logged a total of 118 penalty minutes as Chicoutimi, playing at home, trounced Quebec 10-1 to even up the messy playoff series at 1-1.
