Boucherville, Monday November 26, 2018 – The Director of Player Safety of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, Éric Chouinard, suspended Jeffrey Durocher of the Gatineau Olympiques for 3 games. The suspension was handed out following an incident that occurred on November 24 against the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies. 

Here is the rationale that led to the decision:

While approaching his opponent to complete his check, Jeffrey Durocher took a bad angle and ended behind the Huskies player. As he was trying to slow him down, he clearly slew foots his opponent using his forearm and leg to make him fall violently.

The Rouyn-Noranda player was defenseless.

The Director of Player Safety took this decision after having viewed videos of the incident, considered the officials report, spoken to the players and organizations involved and after consulting the Advisory Committee for disciplinary action.
