Belfour's Bottle Injures Auld

Florida Panthers' goalie Alex Auld was injured early Friday morning at his team's hotel in Uniondale, NY, after slipping on water when Ed Belfour dropped his bottle of water.

As reported in Sunday's Miami Herald, Auld needed stitches above his right eyebrow after the incident in the lobby and did not play Saturday night against the New York Islanders.

Belfour vehemently denied various eyewitness accounts that he had become belligerent at an adjacent bar, where teammates stepped in and tried to get him out.

"We weren't even drinking," said Belfour, who has had a history of alcohol-related legal problems. "There was no alcohol involved whatsoever. There was no drinking, it was a pure accident. I don't even know why we're talking about this now, especially on a game day. We were just hanging out. We went, had a bite to eat and were watching some of the [World Series] baseball game. That was it. We all left together."

First Letowski gets hammered, now this? By the way, the least Eddie could've done was offer Auld one billion dollars to cover his insurance costs.

  1. Hmm. Belfour, with a long history of drinking to excess with hilarious public results, claims he wasn't boozing and belligerent at a bar.

    Well, we can give him the benefit of the doubt. This is all Auld's fault, anyway; he shouldn't have called Belfour's girlfriend a "dog."


  2. Okay this has nothing to do with your post, and I haven't found anything on your blog referring to it. Did you know Greg Johnson of T.Bay (I will not admit I dated him, I will not admit I dated him) was drafted from the predators to the Red Wings (yet again) only to have retired 1 month after signing with them.

    You look really familiar to me, and I have no idea who you are lol...I grew up in FW and went to FW and Churchill :)


  3. Dee,

    I had heard that Greg Johnson retired, but I was unaware of the details. Having to quit because of health issues always bites.

    When did you date him? We have a poster here who's boys with Trevor Letowski, so we always like to hear tales about the guys from home.

    I don't know how much of the blog you've read, but I went to P.A.C.I. -- I lived close to St. Joseph's Heritage. But my boyfriend (a.k.a. The Driver) is one year younger than you and went to Churchill as well.

    You look familiar as well -- what the hell's up with that?
