Video: Bruce Boudreau calls Patrick Roy’s actions ‘bush league’

Oct 3, 2013, 12:57 AM EDT

Hey everyone, Patrick Roy is back in the National Hockey League.

The new head coach of the Colorado Avalanche declared his presence Wednesday night, thanks to a confrontation at the benches with Anaheim Ducks bench boss Bruce Boudreau at the end of the game.

The video below shows Roy, former Avalanche goalie and one of the greatest puck stoppers of all time, yelling and pointing at a player on the ice, before his attention turns to Boudreau.

Roy, who collected his first career win as an NHL head coach, bashed the glass with two hard shoves, as a melee at the bench ensued.

“A coach has no right to start yapping at players. I told him it’s bush league,” Boudreau said after the game, according to the Ducks official Twitter account.
