Video | A fight broke out between players and fans during a hockey game in Saguenay

A violent brawl broke out between players and fans during a North American Hockey League game between the Marques de Jonquières and the Assurancia de Thetford Mines on Friday in Saguenay.

In the second half, the referee sent off a player from the Assurancia de Thetford Mines team, Nicolas Dumolong, after pointing at an opponent.

When he left the ice, fans near the opposing team’s bench rushed to the player. As the video clearly shows, the situation has completely deteriorated. The fans poured beer on the player in question and insulted him repeatedly, while some players tried to calm the altercation by restraining Dumolong.

“We are not looking for that at all, quarrels between players and fans… Were it players from the other team who provoked people in the stands to react in this way? We do not know. “But this is certainly not the kind of scene we are looking for,” he stressed. Supporter of Marquis Roland Poirier.

The city of Saguenay relies on five Garda agents for every Marquis de Jonquière match, which illustrates the scale of the situation.

The North American League will have to make a decision on whether to suspend Nicolas Dumolong.
