Epic Hockey Coach Meltdown Features Flying Sticks

Welcome to Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, where coaching tantrums will not take a back seat to the NHL variety. Here’s Éric Veilleux, head coach of the Baie-Comeau Drakkar, a team which has one of the all-time great logos.

It happened during the second period of their game on Friday night, and needless to say Veilleux didn’t agree with a call, and showed his mild displeasure. I mean, he lost it.

It’s one thing to throw equipment that you see lying around — but quite another when you actually grab sticks from players’ hands to throw onto the ice.

Veilleux was fined $1,000 and given a two-game suspension. Sounds reasonable.

Of course your next question is, does Baie-Comeau Drakkar have a mascot? Of course they do!

His name is Snorri, and he’d like you to forget about all that invasion and pillaging stuff.
