The Flyers Just Signed a “Child Pornographer”

Kyle Scott - March 10, 2011

Why does everyone look like Mark Zuckerberg nowadays?

How did I miss this yesterday?

On Tuesday, the Flyers signed 23-year-old Harry Zolnierczyk to an entry level contract. Zolnierczyk was the captain of Brown's hockey team and the Ivy League player of the year. Sounds like a nice young lad. But wait, there's more.

When playing for the Junior A Alberni Valley Dogs (oh Canada…), Zolnierczyk was charged with the production and distribution of a pornographic video involving an underage girl.

-halts music-

It sounds worse than it is. Zolnierczyk was on the receiving end of a live webcam stream of friend Brad Harding's conquest of a 17-year-old girl. Zolnierczyk then saved the video and played it for members of his hockey team. Ivy League guys are just the worst type of humans. [Canada.com]

"She told police she believed that she had been recorded while having a consensual sex act with [co-accused] Brad Harding, and that people had viewed it," Baines told court.

According to the Crown, the video itself was recorded in Harding's bedroom, at the home of his billet family in November 2006, by a webcam mounted on his computer.

The webcam, in turn, broadcast the images to Zolnierczyk's computer.

Baines said it is believed the video was played for members of the hockey club, but the images might not have come to light but for the windstorm of Dec. 11, 2006, which left the two players stranded at the home of three women in Nanaimo for the night.

 

Ah yes, the great windstorm of Dec, 2006. God I hate Canada.

Let that story fill your head with images of preppy Canadian boys sitting around a computer- he's re-engaging eh! Somewhere, Finch – shit break – would be proud.

Zolnierczyk received a three-year conditional discharge (essentially probation) for his involvement. Unfortunately for him, the term "child pornographer" covers a whole spectrum of misdeeds. There really needs to be a law that implements a five-year age gap when bringing underage charges.

In either case, this guy will get along just fine with Carts.

    not sure why everyone is attacking kyle for this post. other sources who reported on the signing of Zolnierczyk mentioned the charges as well and provided links to the story from the local newspaper about the incident.

    Your Mom and PhillyFan should probably get off their moral high horse.
    Stop posting “i used to liek this site but now”
    Shut the fuck up, people have reported on this, it is a viable news post. You’re just a fucking moron.
    Keep up the work Kyle.

    To Loki:
    1. stop commenting
    2. stop blogging (cause I know you do)
    3. Stop writing
    4. Stop breathing…..
    Morals? you fucking idiot…
    So in your moral fabric its OK to commit statutory rape?
    I feel like your parents should of taught this, just because someone does something(writes) doesn’t mean you should do it too, that’s double for you Lauren…get some sense

    Constructive critics, or just trolls? Why bother responding to this trash?

    There are approximately 14 million stories about Michael Vick being a convicted dog killer on the internet, yet a story about the signing of a convicted child pornographer (no matter the circumstances) is all about page views? Seems fairly newsworthy to me.

    YourMom: I don’t blog. I read them. The kid did not commit statutory rape. Last I checked, he wasn’t the one fucking the underaged girl? Not to mention, in most states 16 is the legal age to have consensual sex as long as there is no more then a 4 year age gap. As for Canada, I’m not sure of their rules.
    Do me a favor, don’t post unless you’re willing to do some research 🙂
    and it’s “you’re” silly bear. Pot, meet kettle.
    and Lynnie, yea don’t you love it? BUt Kyle reports on something like this “zomg not newsworthy need more Vick kills dogs!”

    Good job on this one, Laddie.
    Don’t say I never compliment you when it’s deserved.
    Likewise, you have no reason to be a bitchy whiner whenever I critique you, also when it’s deserved.
    Savvy?

    There are many times when I am fairly moronic, yes, but I always know the difference between “your” and “you’re.”

    Kid is 23 now, which means he was around 18 in ’06 when this happened, and it was a 17 year old girl at the time….
    It’s ridiculous that he’s got to carry the “Child Pornographer” tag over that…
