Former NHL goalie Patrick Roy is unsure whether he will continue to coach and co-own the Quebec City Remparts junior hockey team following claims he was involved in a shoving match.
Police in Saguenay, Que., are investigating accusations that Roy shoved a representative of the Chicoutimi Saguenéens following a Quebec Major Junior Hockey League game pitting the two teams against one another Friday night.

According to police, the incident happened when approximately 50 Chicoutimi fans prevented the visiting Remparts players from boarding their team bus after the game.
Roy denied he did anything wrong following the game, but the four-time Stanley Cup champion told reporters Sunday that the weekend's events "put into question my future at the junior level."
"I am thinking about what I'll decide to do as head coach of the Remparts and even as co-owner of the Quebec Remparts," he told a brief news conference following a Remparts game at the Colisée Pepsi.
Roy also maintained his innocence.
'Nothing to feel guilty about'
"From my part and the part of the Remparts, we have absolutely nothing to feel guilty about in this incident," Roy said.
Roy was inducted to the Hockey Hall of Fame last November.
Roy played 18 seasons with the Montreal Canadiens and Colorado Avalanche and won four Stanley Cups, two with Montreal (in 1986 and 1993) and two with Colorado (1996 and 2001).
Roy won the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP three times (1986, 1993 and 1996) and won the Vezina Trophy as the NHL's top goalie another three times (1989, 1990 and 1992).
He also holds the NHL goaltending record for career wins (551), career games played (1,029) and career playoff wins (151). He's the only goaltender to record 200 wins with different teams.With files from the Canadian Press
