From CBC Ottawa:
The father of a teenage hockey player who was injured in November during a game in Ottawa hopes that criminal charges laid against the teen who hit his son will encourage other players to think about their on-ice behaviour.
“I hope that when players see this, and when they’re about to do something that’s outside the norm of hockey, they think twice about it and they take the time to think that there’s consequences for their actions,” said Tim Sheehan.
Police charged an Ottawa teen with assault with a weapon and assault causing bodily harm after an incident during a Nov. 8, 2015, major midget game in the Ottawa community of Stittsville.
