Usually the Nightfly is the hockey guy, but this happened in my backyard.
Two professional hockey players and a man who may have played professional basketball were arrested outside a South Tampa nightclub early this morning, police say.
The hockey players, who identified themselves as members of the Montreal Canadiens, were arrested about 3 a.m. outside Whiskey Park, 720 S. Howard Ave.
Police say defenseman Ryan O'Bryne stole a woman's purse and teammate Thomas Kostopoulos resisted an officer.
The Canadiens are scheduled to play the Tampa Bay Lightning in Tampa on Tuesday night. In town two days before the game? Too many ways for a Canadian (or Canadien) to get in trouble.
