Pee-wee hockey coach gets 15 days in jail for tripping players

A Vancouver pee-wee hockey coach has been sentenced to 15 days for tripping a player during postgame handshake.

Martin Tremblay swept out the leg of an opposing player while the two teams lined up for the traditional handshake after the game.

A 10-year-old and 13-year-old fell to the ice while the move was captured on video.  Tremblay pleaded guilty to one count of assault in November.  Richmond provincial court Judge Patrick Chen gave the 48-year-old jail time, saying he wasn't satisfied that the time served in the community was enough to denounce or deter the bully for his actions.
