After a rough outing, the son of Colorado Avalanche coach Patrick Roy threw a tantrum after being ejected from a Spengler Cup game in Switzerland on Thursday.

Frederick Roy was tossed from the game after he attempted to fight an opponent as time expired.

Roy's Rochester Americans lost to Switzerland's Geneva-Servette 5-0 in the opening game of the international invitational tournament.

While exiting the rink, Roy yelled at the Geneva-Servette bench, threw a stick and kicked a coffee machine, the Toronto Star reported.

"Roy and his team lost, and they were frustrated," Geneva-Servette assistant coach Louis Matte said, according to the Star. "It happens in hockey."

Roy stayed out of the penalty box Friday when Rochester, the AHL affiliate of the Buffalo Sabres, lost to CSKA Moscow 4-3. Rochester will play in the quarterfinals Sunday.

Patrick Roy won four Stanley Cups during his career and was elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2006.
