Grizzlies player files assault complaint

Victoria Grizzlies defenceman Chris Albertini filed a complaint with West Shore RCMP over an alleged assault by Chilliwack Chiefs assistant coach Brandon Fleenor.

Albertini is alleging that Fleenor hit him in the head with a hockey stick during an incident at a game at Bear Mountain Arena on Saturday, Jan. 12.

RCMP spokesperson Kathy Rochlitz said an investigation is ongoing but no charges have been laid yet. She said a number of other people need to be interviewed before a decision can be made on whether or not to press charges.

“We’re in the midst of speaking to witnesses and other teammates, the public who witnessed the incident.”

 

“It’s alleged at this time that a hockey stick was used, but we haven’t confirmed that at this point,” Rochlitz said. “Basically he (allegedly) took a hockey stick and thrust it towards the player, connecting with the head.”
