Hockey Player Wants More Than Some Peanuts And A Soda From The Drink Cart.
NHL Hockey Player Jiri Hudler was on a Delta flight from New York to Prague when things got a little out of hand. The Hockey Veteran demanded some Coke from the Flight attendant. The flight attendant wishing to quiet the loud Hudler answered his request and poured him a cup of soda. Hudler looked at the cup and said that he wanted white powder, Cocaine.
The Flight attendant said that there were no drugs allowed on the plane. Hudler was irritated by this and Threatened the stewardess. He told her that if she didn’t get him the coke he would have his friends kill her in Prague.
After that incident, Hudler went back to the Bathroom and witnesses say as he walked back to his seat, he had white powder on his lip.
The Veteran NHL player wasn’t quite done yet as he apparently forgot to use the bathroom while he was in there and saw what he thought was a portable John. Only to come to realize through the insistence of the flight crew that he was trying to pee on the drink cart.
As Reported By Pete Blackburn, CBS Sports.
Hudler has denied the allegations, saying it was “just such a small incident.” Police are currently investigating the ordeal.
The NHL vet doesn’t currently have a contract after playing for the Dallas Stars last season, and this incident probably won’t help him much. He has 164 goals and 264 assists in 708 career games with the Red Wings, Flames, Panthers and Stars.
Oh, and it’s worth pointing out that Hudler won the NHL’s Lady Byng Trophy in 2015, given to the “player adjudged to have exhibited the best type of sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct combined with a high standard of playing ability.” He accepted the award while shoeless.
