MONTREAL - Quebec's top court has acquitted former NHLer Guy Lafleur of giving contradictory testimony at his son's sexual assault trial.

In May 2009, Judge Claude Parent said the former star of the Montreal Canadiens had given contradictory testimony at the trial of his son Mark, who was accused of sexual assault including, false imprisonment and death threats against his ex-girlfriend.

Lafleur has always claimed that he had not committed perjury, but that he was simply distracted when questioned in court.
