Byfuglien Addresses His Legal Issues And Weight

from Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun,

Dustin Byfuglien is taking advantage of some extra time in the great outdoors, but the Winnipeg Jets defenceman is relieved that his legal troubles are in the past, is feeling healthy and is eager to get back to work once the NHL labour impasse comes to an end.

“It was more of a pain in the ass than anything,” Byfuglien said of having a trial date set in July after being charged with driving a boat while intoxicated in August of 2011....

While his weight seems to be a frequent topic of conversation, Byfuglien isn’t concerned about the rampant speculation around the Twitter-verse that he’s packed on the pounds.

“I’m right around the same (as last year). Every year it’s always the same stuff and somebody is always going to comment on something,” said Byfuglien, who is listed at 265 pounds on the Jets’ official website. “For me, it’s my weight. I sit and smile at it. It doesn’t matter, as long as I’m able to move and go.”
