Hockey Canada has launched an investigation into a head coach who was seen on video slashing a 9-year-old's legs.

Hockey Canada Investigating Despicable Coach



Recently, ESPN reporter Rick Westhead shared a concerning video to his X account that shows a coach slashing a U10 player's shinpads pretty forcefully.




I was sent this video today, one of several that were purportedly filmed during a U10 GTHL team practice last night.
GTHL comment: "The GTHL is required to report incidents it suspects may be a violation of the Hockey Canada safe sport policies to the Independent Third Party working on behalf of Hockey Canada. The league can confirm that it has filed a report regarding an incident that occurred on Nov. 29, 2023."

The investigation is currently ongoing and the status of the coach is currently unknown. The hockey community has been divided on whether this is coaching or if this is violence. We will now await a verdict on whether this coach will be fired or if the coach will be allowed to keep his job.
