Facing assault charges, Sarnia Sting head coach and GM fired

Sarnia Sting

Sarnia Sting head coach and general manager Jacques Beaulieu has been fired by the OHL club.

The move comes a month after Beaulieu was charged with two counts of assault.

“The reasons for his dismissal are not related to the on ice performance of our hockey club,” said co-owner Rob Ciccarelli in a release. “As per the advice of our lawyers we cannot comment any further at this time.”

Beaulieu’s 20-year-old son, Nathan — a prospect with the Montreal Canadiens — was also charged in what the London Free Press described as “a fight at a party at a private home.”
