07:49 AM ET 03.26 | Former Avalanche goaltender Patrick Roy, coach of a Major Junior Hockey League team, was suspended today in the aftermath of a messy rink-wide brawl involving his son during a game Saturday. Roy was suspended five games for allegedly sending his son, Jonathan, also a goalie, to fight the opposing team's goalie. Jonathan Roy skated the length of the ice and picked a fight with Bobby Nadeau of the Chicoutimi Sagueneens. He pulled off Nadeau's mask and began punching him on the ice. It appeared that Nadeau refused to fight. Roy skated back down the ice and flipped both middle fingers toward the opposing team's crowd. He then fought another Sagueneens player before he was coralled by referees and taken off the ice. The elder Roy, who was on the bench, denied playing any role in the melee, although he appeared to urge on his son with a wave before he attacked the rival goaltender.
