Gatineau Olympiques defenceman Gabriel Bourret may be in trouble with both the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League and police for an alleged incident that occurred during Saturday's 8-2 loss to the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies.

According to La Frontiere newspaper in Rouyn-Noranda, a fan at the game has filed a complaint to the Surete du Quebec police alleging that Bourret hit him with his stick.

Reports indicate Bourret threw a water bottle into the stands from the penalty box after being called for a cross-checking penalty. 

At that point, a fan approached the 20-year-old, who reportedly swung his stick at the patron between a gap in the protective glass in the penalty box.

Bourret was not ejected from the game for either incident. The league will reportedly hold a hearing on Monday.

The Greenfield Park, Quebec native is in his fourth QMJHL season and first as a member of the Olympiques. He has also played for Saint John Sea Dogs and Chicoutimi Sagueneens.

Bourret has five goals and 27 assists in 57 games played this season.
