Vancouver Canucks forward Alex Burrows could be facing charges stemming from an on-ice incident in a Montreal summer hockey league game.

According to a report on RDS.ca, an investigation is underway in response to a complaint filed on July 21 that states Burrows violently struck the face of a goaltender with his stick during a game at the Excellent Ice Arena in Kirkland, Que.

The report said the family of the goaltender, 19-year old Koray Celik, would not comment about the incident on the advice of lawyers.

"Police went to the arena, but there are no charges right now," Burrows' agent Paul Corbeil told The Globe and Mail. "[Police arrived] because some people called the police. They spoke with Alex but nothing more than that."

The summer league, also known as the PHL (Pond Hockey League), is described by Corbeil as a summertime circuit for professional, minor pro and college players.

Canucks assistant GM Laurence Gilman told The Globe that the team was "gathering all the facts" but would make no further comment.

Burrows signed a four-year contract extension with the Canucks in March, which will pay him $2 million per season. The 27-year-old set new career highs with 28 goals, 51 points and 150 penalty minutes in his 2008-09 campaign.
