Players Suspended For North Texas Teen Hockey Brawl

FARMERS BRANCH (AP) – A disciplinary panel has suspended two hockey players for 2 to 2 1/2 years over a fight during a state title game of high school hockey clubs in Dallas that left a player with a broken jaw.

One player each from the Keller High School club team and the Martin High School club team from Arlington drew the suspensions Thursday after a closed hearing Tuesday night before officials of the Texas Amateur Hockey Association.

The brawl happened toward the end of the March 27 game between Keller Hockey Varsity and Arlington Martin Warrior Varsity. Keller won the game and the Silver Division championship 9-3. Video of the fight went viral on the Internet, and was seen worldwide.

The suspensions are appealable.

The teams, which use players from several high schools, aren’t sanctioned by the school districts or the University Interscholastic League.

      If you saw your daughter being raped, wouldn’t you retaliate?
      I see one thug and one player who retaliated. The thug got a broken jaw.

    If you look up the penal code 22.02. The guy should be looked at for a felony offense of Aggravated Assault with serious bodily injury. It is still a school event which he caused an disturbance in the publics eyes with many witnesses. May be the Dallas County DA needs to look at this matter closely to see if charges need to be looked into.
