NH Amateur Hockey Association is aware of an incident that happened on March 7 between Coach Brian Pouliot of the New Hampshire Junior Monarchs U12 team and a referee during a game at the Bog Arena in Kingston, Massachusetts.
Coach Pouliot was issued a Match Penalty during the contest and that penalty automatically triggers a suspension from all USA Hockey activities until such time a hearing is held. As the coach is from New Hampshire, the New Hampshire Amateur Hockey Association is responsible for investigating the incident, conducting a hearing, and issuing any further disciplinary action. That hearing is scheduled for Sunday, March 22.
It should also be noted that Coach Pouliot has been removed by the NH Junior Monarchs Program as coach of the team.
