Paul Holmgren needed to do something today to appease his obsessions, so he traded Harry Zolnierckekeykckyck for tweener tough guy Jay Rosehill.
The Flyers announced that they have acquired LW Jay Rosehill from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for (F) Harry Zolnierczyk, according to club general manager Paul Holmgren.
The 6-3, 215-pound Rosehill has spent the season with the Ducks’ AHL affiliate, the Norfolk Admirals where he has posted eight points (4g-4a) and 90 penalty minutes in 33 games.
And where he stole a car.
Admirals defenseman Jay D. Rosehill was arrested Friday and charged with stealing a car while his team was on the road.
Rosehill, 22, was released on bond from the Broome County Jail on a felony charge of third-degree grand larceny, the Press & Sun-Bulletin newspaper of Bunghamton reported. His release came shortly before the Admirals played the Senators.
The Broome County Sheriff’s Office said a vehicle had been reported stolen from the parking lot of Madame Oar’s, a Binghamton strip club.
A club employee said she had started the car and left it to warm up when it was taken.
Shortly after the report was made, about 1:25 a.m., a deputy spotted the car pulling into the parking lot of the Xhibition Gentlemen’s Club.
The deputy said he saw a man, later identified as Rosehill, run from the car, the Press & Sun-Bulletin reported.
Fun! Lock your doors.
Harry Z, of course, was once charged with child pornography of sorts, when he filmed his buddy boinking an underage girl. So, even trade, I guess.
Flyers scriptuals are a bit miffed by this one:
Can’t wait until we trade Coots and Schenn for two over-the-hill defensemen and a 2014 draft pick!
