SAGUENAY, Quebec -- The son of Hall of Fame goaltender Patrick Roy has been charged with assaulting a rival during a Quebec Major Junior Hockey League playoff game in March.

Quebec Remparts goaltender Jonathan Roy, 19, faces one count of assault against Chicoutimi Sagueneens goalie Bobby Nadeau.

The single charge was filed Thursday in Saguenay, where the brawl occurred.

In a fracas that was replayed countless times across Canada, Jonathan Roy skated the length of the ice and pummeled Nadeau, who made no attempt to fight back.

It was the most notable of a series of fights between the heated Quebec league rivals.

Patrick Roy, the Remparts' coach and general manager, was suspended for five games and his son for seven because of the melee.
