Chara case now in the hands of the Crown
Montreal police are done with the investigation into the infamous Zdeno Chara hit on Max Pacioretty.
The decision on whether to lay criminal charges against the Bruins captain is now in the hands of the Crown.
Authorities got involved with the case this past spring, not long after the March 8 hit which left Pacioretty with a cracked vertebra and a concussion.
There were fears Pacioretty would never play again, but the Habs' No. 67 is expected to be back next season.
Chara wasn't suspended by the NHL for the hit, which sparked massive outrage in Montreal.
