Remparts, Sagueneens forced to take separate pre-game warmups

CHICOUTIMI, Que. - The Quebec Remparts and Chicoutimi Sagueneens were not on the ice at the same time for warmups before their Quebec Major Junior Hockey League playoff game Friday night.

QMJHL commissioner Gilles Courteau announced earlier in the day that the teams would have separate pre-game warmups for the remainder of the series, which Quebec led 3-1 heading into Friday's game.

The decision comes in response to the brawl in which the son of former NHL goalie Patrick Roy repeatedly pounded an opponent during Game 2 of the series last Saturday.

Both coaches and several players were suspended for their roles in the melee. Roy, the Remparts coach, GM and part-owner, got a five-game suspension while his son Jonathan - a goaltender on the team - got seven games.
