Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry allegedly in nightclub incident in Finland, at IIHF World Championships.
After news last week about the Nashville Predators and the suspension of two players for breaking curfew by being out at a Scottsdale Arizona Bar late the night before game 2, comes another incident of players misbehaving in bars.
The latest involves Anaheim Ducks, and Team Canada players Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry, who allegedly had an altercation at the Finnish Night Club “Circus”.
Apparently the two players got into a heated argument with local patrons at the club, hours after Canada’s Overtime Loss to the United States on Saturday. It is alleged that Getzlaf threatened to beat up a group of men and said, “I can knock all of you out in 3 minutes, I’m the captain of the Anaheim Ducks.” It is unclear whether there were actual blows exchanged, but it appears that none were.
“Circus” is a hotspot Helsinki night club where famous Finnish celebrities and musicians are often known to appear. It is said the two players were seen at the club with former Miss Finland Sara Sieppi.
The incident is alleged to have occured at approximately 3 am Helsinski time, and occured outside the club as the place was emptying following last call.
Getzlaf is the Captain of the Canadian Team in the World Championships. Getzlaf and Perry are long time Teammates who won the Stanley Cup with the Ducks in 2007, and who won Olympic Gold with Team Canada in 2010.
