A BC hockey dad has been sentenced to a conditional discharge with 12 months probation for threatening a nine-year-old player on his son’s hockey team.

The incident allegedly happened in the dressing room at the Karen Magnussen Arena after the boys’ Atom 3 team lost a playoff game in February, according to the RCMP.

Terry Litt, 57, pleaded guilty to uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm to his son Jordan’s teammate Rocky Bhala and was sentenced Thursday.

In court, it was revealed the children had often had physical confrontations in the past.

Rocky Bhala says his teammate’s father, Terry Litt, threatened to kill him.

Before he was sentenced to a 12-month conditional discharge by Provincial Court Judge John Milne, Litt apologized to Bhala and said it wasn’t becoming of a man his age.
