Last month in Phoenix, seven Ottawa Senators players - Matt Duchene, Thomas Chabot, Dylan DeMelo, Alex Formenton, Chris Tierney, Chris Wideman, and Colin White - were recorded while having a conversation in the back of an Uber by the car's dashcam.
An Uber spokesperson said the video was a "clear violation" of the organization's guidelines for drivers. "This is an important learning experience, and we will do better".
They were discussing the team's ineffective penalty killing and mocking Raymond in what appears to be a recording from a camera mounted on the dashboard.
"We're not going to go any further comments than that".
The Senators are now 29th in the league in penalty killing at 68.8 per cent.
Defenceman Chris Wideman, sitting in the front passenger seat, chirps in: "Do you notice that when (Raymond) runs the video, if you actually do pay attention, he doesn't ever teach you anything?" Wideman added. "He just commentates what's happening".
However, the recording doesn't seem to be illegal considering Arizona is a one-party consent state, and the driver made himself part of the conversation when he asked the riders what team they played for. "I haven't paid attention in three weeks".Читайте также: Netflix Announces Anime Series Bases on Pacific Rim and Altered Carbon
"Sadly they learned the lesson more than anybody else, but everyone else will understand, you've got to be real careful in this day and age about what you say in public, even when you think it's private", Maurice said.
Either way, both the players and head coach Guy Boucher released a statement in response to the video.
Friedman goes on to note that the Ottawa Citizen story that accompanied the video was published with a staff byline, an indication none of the Citizen's reporters were interested in writing the story despite the fact that the newspaper clearly was.
Other players that were seen on video getting out of the vehicle were defenseman Dylan DeMelo and winger Alex Formenton, who is no longer with the Senators after leaving to return to his junior club. And in May, the wife of former captain Erik Karlsson filed an order of protection against Mike Hoffman's fiancée, claiming she had posted over 1,000 "negative and derogatory" comments about her on social media.
The video, which has since been taken down, was recorded by a camera that was mounted by the rear-view mirror of a auto, according to a report by the Ottawa Citzen.
While it's certainly an embarrassing moment for the Senators and the Ottawa organization, Maurice said people should realize that such talk among players is not uncommon.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
