During the Jets game last night, Winnipeg Police Service assisted Canada Life Centre security staff with several uncooperative patrons being evicted from the Winnipeg Jets game.

The assault caused the victim to lose his balance and fall back onto the ice surface boards, causing a laceration to his head.
