Former Edmonton Oilers owner Peter Pocklington could be headed for jail.

The former Edmonton Oilers owner was in a Riverside, Calif., courtroom Monday for breaching his probation on a previous bankruptcy-fraud conviction in October 2010.

According to U.S. Justice spokesperson Thomas Mrozek, part of that order was that he make monthly financial reports to his probation officer.

During one particular month, Mrozek said Pocklington received a cheque for $15,000 as a fee for some consulting services he provided to several companies promoting gold mines in Arizona. But he failed to properly account for those funds with the probation officer.
