From the Associated Press:

MONTREAL (AP)—The agent for Vancouver Canucks forward Alex Burrows(notes) says his client in under investigation for an altercation that took place in a summer league hockey game.

Canadian television network RDS reported a complaint was filed July 21, stating Burrows hit goalie Koray Celik in the face with his stick during a game in suburban Kirkland, Quebec.

“There are no changes, the police are investigating, but we won’t comment on what happened,” Burrows’ agent Paul Corbeil said. ‘I don’t think he’ll he charged, but you never know.”

The game took place in the Pond Hockey League, where pro and university players skate to stay in shape during the offseason. Celik, a 19-year-old goalie from Quebec plays for the University of Southern Maine.

Seems those Huskies will do anything to get some off season notice!

Burrows is the man in that league. 3 on 3 half size rink. He gets testy if someone gets in his face. Kinda funny

Maybe he figured it (http://onlinesportsguys.blogspot.com/2009/08/canucks-burrows-facing-misconduct.html) would be a way to find a new lucky stick (http://loge19.com/2009/08/03/alex-burrows-and-his-lucky-stick/):confused:

Good video here (http://www.examiner.com/x-8246-Nashville-Predators-Examiner~y2009m8d3-Predator-rival-facing-possible-legal-trouble), though of a different hit.

Goalie robs Burrows. Burrows gives him a slap with the stick. Goalie punches Burrows with blocker. Burrows cross checks goalie in face apparently knocking out teeth. Goalie phones cops. Burrows status as generally despised is maintained.

Interesting thread (http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?t=669177) from the HFBoards.

Specifically this (http://hfboards.com/showpost.php?p=20643173&postcount=42), sounds plausible, it will be interesting to see how it plays out.
