Jets’ goalie Ondrej Pavelec has been charged with drinking under the influence in his native Czech Republic. No injuries were reported after Pavs rear-ended another car at a street corner. The last time Pavs made the news was the 24-year-old goalie signed a 5-year $19.5M contract in late June.
As per the Winnipeg Free Press, Jets’ GM Kevin Cheveldayoff had this to say about the matter:
“At this time True North Sports & Entertainment and the Winnipeg Jets Hockey Club are aware of various, yet still inconsistent, internet reports pertaining to Ondrej Pavelec. We, as an organization, are attempting to gather more information and until such time as we are comfortable and have a full understanding of the situation, we will not be issuing any further comment.”
