Boucherville, Monday January 2nd, 2016 – The Director of Player Safety of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, Raymond Bolduc, suspended Jocktan Chainey of the Halifax Mooseheads for 4 games. The suspension was handed out following an incident that occurred on December 30th against the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles.

Here is the rationale that led to the decision:

  • A Cape Breton defenseman made an exit zone pass in the middle of the ice.
  • The opponent redirected it to the boards with his skate and went to retrieve it.
  • The player at fault skated to the opponent and hit him.
  • The opponent was in a vulnerable position and was not in possession of the puck.
  • The player at fault came from the blindside and hit the opponent’s head with the top of his shoulder.
  • The opponent was injured on the play.
  • This is the first offense of the player at fault.

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.
