Police in Montreal would like to speak with Zdeno Chara of the Boston Bruins.
Montreal police say charges against Boston Bruins captain Zdeno Chara have still not been ruled out as they prepare to speak to him in the coming weeks about his controversial hit on Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty. Chara’s hit in March landed Pacioretty in the hospital and ended his season. The towering Bruins defenceman was thrown out of the game but subsequently received no suspension from the National Hockey League.
Montreal police said in March that they would investigate the incident to see if there was any criminal element.
Sgt. Ian Lafrenière of the Montreal police said the investigation was delayed because most of the witnesses were hockey players busy with the Stanley Cup playoffs.
