They were told that two referees, 36 and 24 years old, were assaulted in the change room by a player’s family members.

“This type of behaviour has no place in our hockey community,” Const. Michael Hagel said. “As adults you are responsible to set a good example for the youth playing the game.”

Scott Payne, 51, and Jayden Payne, 23, have been charged with assault related to the skirmish.
