A junior hockey coach in Vancouver has reportedly been arrested and released and is awaiting charges after he tripped a 13-year-old boy during a postgame handshake line last weekend. The UBC Hornets coach, Martin Tremblay, had just coached his team to a 5-4 victory before the classless postgame antics were unleashed. As you can see from the video above that Richmond Steel manager Tammy Hohlweg shared with, Tremblay clearly tripped two of the Richmond players.

Hohlweg, who saw the entire situation unfold, says one of the boys who was tripped suffered a broken wrist and will be in a cast for two weeks.

“He was just trying to shake hands,” Hohlweg explained. “The game was over. No matter what happens in a game, our rule is you shake hands, you do what you’re supposed to do at the end.”

After the trip, the crowd presumably began yelling at Tremblay. As you can see from the screenshot below from this video, he responded by giving them the finger as his players yelled alongside him and one of them threw a water bottle at the glass.

“Actually seeing it is horrifying,” Hohlweg said. “He should not be allowed around kids. No more coaching for this coach. If a coach is like that, the kids will feed off that – the kids will react and do that too.”

Regardless of what the 13-year-old could have possibly done during the game to anger Tremblay, there’s absolutely no excuse for that type of behavior. The fact that he chose to trip a young boy and then turn around and flip people off immediately afterward is disturbing, to say the least. Hohlweg is right that he has no business being allowed around kids after that.

We’ve seen players do some pretty messed up things that deserve punishment and even coaches who get suspended for no reason, but Tremblay has to go.

  • Unacceptable!
  • This loser didn't even shake hands with any of the kids. He had a target and went for it. He can't even call himself a man. He needs to pull up his big boy panties and learn how to act like an adult. If I were that boy's parents I would take every and anything I could from him. What a waste of flesh.
  • The coach is lucky he did not get his A kicked, as the boy was diffidently bigger.
  • Someone needs to take this coach out behind the barn and teach him some manners and sportsmanship. He broke that kids wrist I'd sue him personally. Its disgusting what some coachs teach kids. Hockey would be a great sport if there was less fighting on the ice and more playing.Can you imagine what it would be like if there was this kind of thing in all sports.
  • Big tough guy...they should have let the kids on the team beat his ass.
  • If I were that boys father I'd have jumped on the ice and pounded that *******. And yes, that IS setting a good example. It's time to stand up to bullies, coaches, teachers, and other parents who are way out of line.
  • He probably works as a manager for Fred Meyer.
