A unknown (as of now) former NHL enforcer is on the run from the looooooooong arm of the law.
VERNON, B.C. (CP) - A former NHL enforcer is accused of being involved in an assault at a Vernon motel Tuesday night.So, be on the lookout for a mystery enforcer who, "played in the late 1990's" and likes to make a lot of noise. Hmmmm, that doesn't really narrow it down too much now does it. So I won't even hazard a guess about who to be on the outlook for. So approach all former NHL enforcers who played in the late 90's and like to make a lot of noise with caution. God help us all.
Police were called to the Best Western Vernon Lodge after a security guard said he'd been attacked while asking a hotel guest keep the noise down.
The guard says he was pulled into the suspect's room and beaten in the face before the man fled on foot.
The RCMP found the suspect's girlfriend and children in the room and determined he was an enforcer in the NHL who played in the late 1990's.
Police say they will get an arrest warrant for the man if he doesn't surrender.
His name won't be released until he is charged.
