Goaltender Ondrej Pavelec will see more “consequences” as a result of his drunk driving conviction last summer.
Winnipeg Jets owner Mark Chipman said Thursday he’d make those public after meeting with Pavelec in the near future.
“I haven’t had a chance to meet with Ondrej other than the conference call we had back in the summer,” Chipman said during a media conference call Thursday. “During which I sensed a real genuine feeling of remorse. And I sensed that again in his comments (Wednesday). But until I get a chance to speak with him, face to face, I prefer not to discuss what those consequences are going to be.”
Pavelec received a six-month suspended sentence and had his drivers license suspended for 20 months after rear-ending another vehicle in the Czech Republic.
So far, the team has not doled out any additional discipline, although some form of community service — appearances at schools, public service announcements — would be one possibility.
