MONTREAL -- Zdeno Chara hoisted the Stanley Cup as captain of the Boston Bruins two weeks ago. Now the big defenceman will have something else on his hands: a meeting with Montreal police.
Montreal cops have announced they intend to question Chara soon -- but they won't say when or where they'll do it.
A probe into Chara's hit last March that sidelined Montreal forward Max Pacioretty and sparked demands for a crackdown on hockey violence is nearing completion.
A police spokesman says Chara is the final person they need to speak with to complete their investigation; after that, the Crown will decide whether to press charges.
"The last person to meet is the person targeted by the investigation and that will be done in the coming weeks or months," Lafreniere said.
