I'm sure the Ducks organization will make this guy a coaching offer....
Junior hockey coach Martin Tremblay trips 13-year-old boy during handshakes, gives him broken wrist, flips off crowd
"A junior hockey coach in Vancouver has reportedly been arrested and released and is awaiting charges after he tripped a 13-year-old boy during a postgame handshake line last weekend. The UBC Hornets coach, Martin Tremblay, had just coached his team to a 5-4 victory before the classless postgame antics were unleashed. As you can see from the video above that Richmond Steel manager Tammy Hohlweg shared with LarryBrownSports.com, Tremblay clearly tripped two of the Richmond players. Hohlweg, who saw the entire situation unfold, says one of the boys who was tripped suffered a broken wrist and will be in a cast for two weeks.
“He was just trying to shake hands,” Hohlweg explained. “The game was over. No matter what happens in a game, our rule is you shake hands, you do what you’re supposed to do at the end.”
After the trip, the crowd presumably began yelling at Tremblay. As you can see from the screenshot below from this video, he responded by giving them the finger as his players yelled alongside him and one of them threw a water bottle at the glass.
“Actually seeing it is horrifying,” Hohlweg said. “He should not be allowed around kids. No more coaching for this coach. If a coach is like that, the kids will feed off that – the kids will react and do that too.”
Regardless of what the 13-year-old could have possibly done during the game to anger Tremblay, there’s absolutely no excuse for that type of behavior. The fact that he chose to trip a young boy and then turn around and flip people off immediately afterward is disturbing, to say the least. Hohlweg is right that he has no business being allowed around kids after that.
We’ve seen players do some pretty messed up things that deserve punishment and even coaches who get suspended for no reason, but Tremblay has to go."

That looks like something Phoenix Goalie, Mike Smith would pull.

trying to make this a DUCKS thing is a classless act by the OP IMO. he has never worked for or played for the Ducks. Why bring them up at all ?

He doesn't even have to leave Vancouver to find an NHL team where he would fit right in.
The Canucklehead didn't fall far from the totem.

Really? I did not think that anyone could take that 'ducks' reference seriously? Don't get your panties in a bunch. With all the ribbing that goes back and forth on this board between Kings and Ducks fans over years I would expect people to have a thicker skin around here.
