The Ottawa Senators traded forward Mike Hoffman to the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday amid allegations his fiancee, Monika Caryk, harassed Sens defenseman Erik Karlsson’s wife online.
Ottawa sent Hoffman, defenseman Cody Donaghey and a 2020 fifth-round draft pick to San Jose for forward Mikkel Boedker, defenseman Julius Bergman and a 2020 sixth-round draft pick, but wait there’s more…….Hoffman was just traded again within a few hours to the Florida Panthers for a few draft picks.
What the fuck is going on in Ottawa? I mean seriously this is some crazy soap opera shit that has broke the news in the last few weeks. Melinda Karlsson filed an order of protection against Caryk, alleging Caryk harassed her for months on the internet and even wished her unborn child dead. Tragedy struck the Karlsson family in March when they had a stillborn child.
Hoffman has now been traded twice so far today and its not even 11am on the east coast yet. Erik Karlsson is a very respected player and hockey players are a very tight knit group of guys so it wouldnt surprise me to see Mike Hoffman shunned from the National Hockey League in a very short time period.
Caryk has really done a number on Hoffmans career and its hard to come back from the things that have been said and done in Ottawa. Just imagine you are on a team that trades for Hoffman and he and his wife move to town. Are you really going to reach out and invite them over for dinner to welcome them to the team? Women are very protective and motherly instincts kick in so the hatred all woman have towards Miss Caryk is going to continue and never allow Hoffman to really settle in to wherever he should end up playing.
My advice to Mike Hoffman is very simple…..
