Phelix Martineau Suspended

Phelix Martineau is the latest player to be suspended in the Saint John – Cape Breton season long series of suspensions.

The QMJHL announced today that Martineau has been “suspended until further notice. The incident will be studied further before a final decision is rendered.”

“The Director of Player Safety will be able to take his final decision once he has viewed the videos of the incident, spoken to the player and the organization involved and after consulting the disciplinary committee,” stated a QMJHL press release.

This is presumably the play that resulted in the suspension:
Martineau was given a two-minute minor for boarding. Bailey Webster quickly got up from the hit and stayed in the game.

The hit had similar aspects to the Bokondji Imama hit in game four (which resulted in a seven game suspension) and the Nathan Noel hit in game two (which resulted in a one-game suspension). Clips, along with all the other suspensions that have come from the bizarre season long Saint John – Cape Breton series, can be found here.

Martineau, whose brother Vincent is currently on the Sea Dogs’ roster, has two goals and three assists in 11 playoff games this year. The Eagles will be without the forward for game six tomorrow night at Centre 200.
