As if the Chicago Blackhawks' Patrick Kane did not get enough hot water for his taxi cab flap last summer, the 21-year-old right winger brought it to a boil again.
In 2009, Kane was arrested for punching a Buffalo cab driver over 20 cents. This time, a trio of Blackhawks found trouble for acting like high rollers in their late-night limo romp with local ladies during the club's trip to Vancouver.
No, it's not the first time athletes have been caught out on the town. Money, some free time and a fun city like Vancouver are the perfect ingredients for debauchery. But for the Blackhawks, it's another eye-rolling moment for a player who is better off doing his damage with his sweater on.
Nothing says good time like a bunch of hockey players, who get as much as sun as Eskimos, rocking their bare chests in Vancouver on a raw winter's day.
Kane looks like he's on his way to the prom after party with some beer he heisted from his dad's collection. Shirtless, sauced up, and scandalous is no way to go through life, son.
To the gun show, that is. Madden pops off his water pistol for the camera. Hockey players are rarely known as gym rats. Madden shows off why that's true.
Kris Versteeg, seen here chilling with his shades (at night) and his dog tags, must be looking at his shirtless teammates and thinking "No shirts? Really guys?? Really?"
In 18 months, Kane has twice been in the public eye for the wrong reasons. Once for punching out a cab driver over two dimes, and another for an impromptu night tossing around some loonies while out in Vancouver.
Not really. The pictures of Kane supposedly in black face as Scottie Pippen (right) at the Blackhawks' Halloween party last fall brought more heat. Intentional or not, it was another reason for Kane to catch flack.
