Should women hockey players apologize for smoking and drinking on ice?

VANCOUVER -- Hockey Canada apologized Thursday for a boozy impromptu party the Olympic women's hockey team threw for itself on the Canada Hockey Place ice after winning the gold medal.

Canadian players, still wearing their uniforms and with gold medals draped around their necks, celebrated their victory by drinking champagne and beer at centre ice following a 2-0 win over the United States.

The International Olympic Committee said it will investigate the celebration, which included drinking by one of Canada's underage players.

In a statement released late Thursday, Hockey Canada apologized.

Do you think it was necessary for Hockey Canada to apologize for the players? Have your say in our forum.

I, by no means, am a prude or against celebrating with champagne & beer, but to do it on the ice?? Not cool. Even if the building was mostly empty at that time, it's still wrong. You would never see the Stanley Cup winning team come back out of the dressing room an hour later and drink beer on the zamboni. This should have remained in the dressing room. Taking to the ice looks really bad.
