Former Sabre won't face charges in on ice melee

A former Buffalo Sabres player and St. Catharines native won't face any charges following an on ice brawl last weekend in the Queen City.

Andrew Peters who coaches the Buffalo Junior Sabres was under investigation after a video surfaced, showing him reaching across the bench and shoving an opposing player from a Hamilton team to the ice.

The city's District Attorney says they decided not to take legal action, after the parents of the player said they did not want to pursue criminal charges.
