Arizona Coyotes winger Richard Panik was arrested last week for trespassing at a nightclub in Scottsdale.  

Per The Republic's Victor Ren, Scottsdale police arrested Panik on April 8 for suspicion of trespassing after he refused to leave the Bevvy nightclub entrance. 

Police officials also noted Panik "appeared to be intoxicated during his first contact with officers" prior to being arrested.

After being booked into jail, Panik was given a criminal citation when he was released. 

Per the Associated Press, the Coyotes are aware of Panik's arrest and are gathering information. 

A six-year NHL veteran, Panik started this season with the Chicago Blackhawks before being traded to the Coyotes in January. The 27-year-old had 19 points in 35 games with Arizona after the deal.
