Patrick Sharp On The Rumors Of Problems In The Chicago Blackhawks’ Dressing Room

from Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune,

It was an emotional Patrick Sharp who stood in the dressing room of the Chicago Blackhawks' practice facility and spoke of the toll that rumors on the Internet have taken on him and his family.

"It’s been tough," Sharp said Sunday at Johnny's IceHouse West. "As a hockey player, as a professional, you’re out there and you’re up for grabs for on-ice play. I’m OK with that. Trade rumors, talk about my play on the ice — I’m fine with that, I can handle that. But when people delve into your personal life and make up rumors and things that are completely false and untrue, it takes a toll on you. And it takes a toll on your family, your friends, and it’s completely unnecessary. It’s been tough, but I know I’ve got a strong group of teammates here, we’re going to stick together.”

The rumors have ranged from infidelity to rifts with teammates and have spread like wildfire on social media and the Intenet. One Web site listed numerous alleged incidents. Sharp said he is considering legal action to stop the spread of the rumors.

Where there is smoke, there is usually fire.

I heard Patrick Sharp keyed Seabrook’s Miata after Seabrook ate the leftover pizza in the team refrigerator even though it was clearly labeled “Sharper”
