WINNIPEG - Two 12-year-old hockey players are accused of assault with a weapon following an on-ice brawl in Winnipeg last season.
The fight broke out at the end of a game on Feb. 16 between Peewee teams from the Sagkeeng and Brokenhead Ojibwa First Nations.
Video of the fight, recorded by someone in the stands, shows players and coaches scuffling with each other and a referee.
At one point, a player is seen swinging his stick at the referee's head.
In April, one of the coaches was charged with assault.
Winnipeg police say the two players charged have been released pending their next court appearance.
