Saguenay, Quebec - Former Avalanche star Patrick Roy is facing possible assault charges after allegedly getting into a shoving match following a major junior hockey game in Chicoutimi, north of Quebec City.

Roy, a Hockey Hall of Famer who owns and coaches the Quebec City Remparts of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, is accused of hitting an opposing team's owner.

Police say about 50 fans of the Chicoutimi Sagueneens prevented the visiting Remparts players from boarding their team bus after a Friday night game.

Roy reportedly then got off the bus and attacked the Sagueneens' owner.

Police say they will interview witnesses before meeting with Roy in the coming days.
