WINSTON-SALEM, NC (AP) — Police in North Carolina are investigating a fight involving a hockey player and a fan at a recent game.

The Winston-Salem Journal reports police say Elmira Enforcers goaltender Troy Passingham was walking to his locker room after a game with the Carolina Thunderbirds last Saturday when a fan squirted him with water.

The newspaper cites a video which it said showed Passingham either threw his equipment or took a punch at the fan, who is seen falling down. A person identified as the wife of Thunderbirds owner Barry Soskin also fell down.

Carolina and Elmira are playing for the Federal Hockey League championship. League Commissioner Don Kirnan said a conference call scheduled for Tuesday would determine what punishments will be handed down.
