Baie-Comeau Drakkar coach Eric Veilleux had a meltdown of epic proportions on his team's bench in which he made sure everyone knew that he was upset by throwing his players' sticks out onto the ice.

During the second period of a game Friday, Veilleux disagreed with a call on the ice. He then received an explanation from a referee that he unsurprisingly didn't see eye to eye on. And that's when things got crazy.

Anna Fogel of reported that the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League suspended Veilleux two games and fined him $1,000 for his actions.
