DeBrusk Facing Multiple Criminal Charges

from the CP at The Hockey News,

A television sports commentator and former NHL player is facing more than a few minutes in the penalty box after a late-night punch-up in Vancouver.

Louie DeBrusk, a Sportsnet broadcaster with the Edmonton Oilers, is facing several charges for allegedly assaulting a cab driver, punching a Good Samaritan and vandalizing a taxi.

Vancouver Police say the incidents occurred Jan. 7 outside a downtown Vancouver hotel, just hours after the Oilers lost 6-1 to the Canucks.

^This. Never mind the players, I think the league needs to take action to protect CABBIES from headshots.

Cue Mike Milbury….
