WINNIPEG, MB – In response to recent trade rumours involving him and the New York Islanders, Winnipeg defenceman Dustin Byfuglien reportedly threw one of general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff's suits in a locker room shower on Monday afternoon.
Upon hearing Elliotte Friedman's report in the morning, it is believed that Byfuglien marched into the GM's office, stole his spare suit from behind the office door, and dumped it on the floor of the showers.
Jets captain Andrew Ladd witnessed the incident and said it brought back fond memories.
"Buffy's up to his old tricks," Ladd said.
"Clothes in the shower is his specialty. He did it to me last week when I put some shaving cream in one of his skates."
Cheveldayoff, meanwhile, was quick to gloss over the incident.
"It's not a big deal," he said. "That's just a passionate young man expressing himself."
"He would be an asset to any NHL team with his competitive attitude. Especially the Isles."
