It's party time -- on net -- for Staals
JOE WARMINGTON -- Sun Media
It looks like pictures from a show called NHL Stars gone wild. In fact a web site shows recently charged hockey stars Eric and Jordan Staal appearing to be in full party mode.
But it's actually a lot tamer than that, says one of the participants in the pictures.
"It's taken a little out of context," said Eric Staal's fiancee, Tanya Vandenbroeke. "It was just a going away party I threw for Eric last year. It was just a day of volleyball with friends."
It certainly was not photos from the party in question in Minnesota that landed the Carolina Hurricanes star in jail for a night.
The pictures -- at www.talk-sports.net/nhl/girlfriend.aspx/Eric_Staal -- show Staal, his brother Jordan and other friends making up party signs and enjoying some beverages.
