Welland Hockey Fight Leads To Arrest

A Welland youth has been charged with assault causing bodily harm in connection with an attack during a minor hockey game at Welland Arena in February.

Niagara Regional Police say the victim, whom they have not identified, sustained a broken nose that required surgery plus several other injuries as a result of “an unprovoked brutal attack,” during the minor hockey game.

Police issued a media release Tuesday, saying their investigation led to the arrest of one youth.

Sgt. Paul Blakely, who investigated the incident, said the victim, who was visiting the city from another community for the hockey game, has fully recovered from the incident.

“He’s fine.”

In addition to the broken nose, Blakely said the victim has a “minor concussion and a few scrapes and bruises, but he’s fine.”

Welland Minor Hockey Association president Doug Thomson said he wasn’t aware of the incident, and couldn’t comment on it specifically.
