it is amazing to me that the league is basically condoning the behaviour of both the player and his action. We know what happened ..are we questionong that the act actually occured..does an excutive member have to see it so action can be taken..or is it a matter of who it is and the team..i feel all players should be treated equally..What happened to Frenc should be the same for this young man..oh no ..reward him for good behaviour.Way to go AESHL

Oh, folks, this is only the AESHL that is involved here. Wait until HNL gets involved, the player will definitely get a medal for sportsmanship.

It is not right for anyone to throw objects at anybody. Or resort to any form of violence whatsoever but if Glen legge had been acting his age instead of acting like a 15 year old, this incident wouldn't have happened in the first place.

Classless all the way around; I saw better hockey played on Burton's Pond in the 70's. A bush league with bush players and idiot fans.

And, for the record, the fans wern't gathered to taunt the players. The fans were held up by security to let the players cross from the ice to the dressing room. Very poor and selective reporting. Even worse judgement by the league. If the player has been identified by the RCMP and has agreeed that he indeed did it then the league should definetly suspend him. Basically they said "Well, a player can assult fans as long as we don't see them do it." Unnacceptable. The league say they have a strict policy regarding on & off ice behaviour, well it's time you stick to the policy instead of making irrational decisions based on what team theyare, who the exec is and who the owner is. Worst part is that by not suspending him they are subjecting him to the possibility of being a target in their next game against CBN. Everyone knows who they guy is. Sometimes the suspension is for their own good, not necessarily a chastising event. BTW, I'm a fan of neither team.

That's the type of leadership all hockey leagues strive for. Dick's is sending a clear meesage to all the players in his league that if you happen to cut open one of the fans , then rest easy, and get ready to lace em' up next game. Be worrried Gary Bettman, be very worried.

I was at the game Friday and Saturday night and the Wolverines were there but not doing their job like they did last year when the Cee Bee Stars played Southern Shore,.Last year when they were called for Security purposes you couldn't get a needle between them they were shoulder to shouder and you could not pass through them till all players and coaches were on the ice or coming off.They were identified by there wolverine jackets with their vests over them,some off them just come out just to get in free and watch the game.If they are there they should be doing their job and not lacking around.

The Avalon Wolverines, who provide security at this facility were all wearing their Club Jackets clearly identifying them and linking arms to prevent fans and players from interacting physically. So, I believe Dicks is wrong in his statement..
