This isn’t an isolated incident. Many consider this New Western Bruins 14u hockey team dirty, some coaches have refused to play them. One coach said they have been doing this since squirt, their coaches and the parents encourage fighting.
“They’re pretty notorious,” Adam Schwartz, president of the Ridge Meadows Minor Hockey Association, said of the Bruins.
The Bruins are coached by Nick Boorman, who once coached in the Ridge Meadows association, Schwartz said, but was removed by the association over differences in coaching philosophy.
