QMJHL to hand down Cormier decision Monday

Canada's Patrice Cormier hits Switzerland's Jannik Fischer during the third period of their semi-final game at the 2010 IIHF U20 World Junior Hockey Championship in Saskatoon.


Patrice Cormier will learn his fate Monday.

The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League announced Wednesday it will unveil "disciplinary measures" for Cormier, a forward with the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies, early next week.

Cormier, who served as captain of Canada's world junior team, earned nation-wide attention this week for elbowing Mikael Tam during a game and sending the Quebec Remparts player to hospital with brain trauma and broken teeth.

The QMJHL said Raymond Bolduc, its chief disciplinarian, has been examining testimony from witnesses, including statements from players, on-ice officials and representatives from Rouyn-Noranda and the Remparts.

The league said it will not comment again until the announcement is made Monday.
