Peel Regional Police say investigators are now probing a violent hockey fight between two youth hockey teams and some coaching staff members in Mississauga after the altercation was caught on camera and posted on social media.
In a video shared by Julie Koostachin, an unidentified team wearing blue and white jerseys appears to be celebrating at one end of an ice rink. It’s not clear what teams were involved in the fight.
A lone player wearing a blue jersey appears to be skating toward the team when two players in white and red jerseys can be seen charging toward the player. One of them pushes the player in the blue and white jersey, causing them both to fall to the ice.
Two referees can be seen skating to the fighting players before more players in white and red jerseys go over. The rest of the players in blue and white jerseys can be seen skating over where the fight was occurring, and seconds later the brawl breaks out.
“OMFG!! Those little f—ers attacking my baby,” Koostachin wrote in her post early Thursday.
“He just wanted to celebrate with the rest of his team mates (sic) after winning this championship game.”
