07:19 AM ET 12.27 | Apparently, a fiery streak runs throughout the Roy family -- something that became abundantly clear after Frederick Roy's first game at the Spengler Cup. With his team, the AHL's Rochester Americans, on their way to a 5-0 loss after being frustrated late in the game, Roy was ejected as time expired after trying to fight Cody Almond of Switzerland's Geneva-Servette. Upon exiting the rink, Roy, the son of Colorado Avalanche coach Patrick Roy, yelled at the opposing bench and was visibly agitated while walking to the dressing room. He threw a stick and began kicking a coffee machine. He also insulted the Swiss cameraman who filmed his rampage in the bowels of the arena. "Roy and his team lost and they were frustrated," Geneva-Servette assistant coach Louis Matte said following the game.

I wasn't sure what to feel more sorry for: the hockey sticks taking the abuse, or the chewing gum in that coach's mouth. :)

Rochester Americans are a Sabres affiliate. Curious to see if the organization comments.

One of the Roys? Losing his cool? Who could've imagined that?

Don't you love the ref's jerseys? Somebody should lobby Bettman and the NHL brass to have them implemented in the NHL!

I guess all those girls chanting his name over and over got him good and mad, too, sounds like a baby crying:(

I must say, it was very gratifying seeing a diminutive (5'9" 167 lb) Mike Vernon take it to (6'1" 210 lb) Patrick Roy.

What's the big deal? Should he be happy that they just got shut out? A good loser is somebody that's used to losing.

Send him home.
