On Nov. 5, the Ottawa Citizen released a video that included footage of seven Ottawa Senators — Matt Duchene, Thomas Chabot, Alex Formenton, Dylan DeMelo, Colin White, Chris Tierney, and Chris Wideman — riding in an Uber van. In the video, the players discussed the club’s poor performance on the penalty kill, as well as the coach in charge of special teams, Martin Raymond. The players were filmed without consent or knowledge of the recording.

The Uber driver, who has been identified as James Sparklin, has had multiple run-ins with the law. In 1999, Sparklin was convicted on a misdemeanor charge of assault and spent eight days in jail. In 2012, he entered a plea agreement for a misdemeanor assault and disorderly conduct, but it is not stated whether or not he spent jail time for this.
