Coyotes’ forward films himself with cocaine, posts it on social media

Trending... for all of the wrong reasons !



This is a terrible judgement call. I’m not sure what went through his mind, but Arizona Coyotes forward Adam Ruzicka recently posted a story on Instragram where he can be clearly seen with cocaine in front of him. In the video, Ruzicka appears to have set up a station in order to consume the cocaine, then flips the camera towards himself where he grins like an idiot, almost proud of what he is about to do.

As you can imagine, the video has since been removed from Ruzicka’s account, though it was copied and posted on X, formerly known as Twitter. Here is what was once on Ruzicka’s Instagram page, which is sure to get him in trouble with the Coyotes, and even the NHL.

Ruzicka is newly a member of the Coyotes after he was claimed on waivers by Arizona. He was waived by the Calgary Flames on January 24, and claimed by the Yotes. He since has played three games for Arizona, but however failed to record a point. In his role as a depth forward in Calgary, he had three goals and nine points in 39 games.

Back in 2017, Ruzicka was selected in the fourth round, 109th overall by the Flames. In 117 games in the NHL, the Slovakian forward has put up 14 goals and 40 points.

Not sure he will get to add more if he does not get help for his addiction problem.

You may remember how Washington Capitals’ Evgeny Kuznetsov got in trouble when he received a four year ban from the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) after testing positive for cocaine at the 2019 IIHF World Championships. Kuznetsov was caught on film during the tournament with cocaine lines spread out on a nearby table. Kuznetsov declined any involvement with the drug and played the whole situation off as a “wrong place, wrong time” type situation. The NHL and the Capitals accepted his explanation, closing the matter formally.

Not sure however that Ruzicka can use the same explanation. In the video, he appears to be alone with the cocaine and could get reprimanded by the Coyotes and the league.

Doesn’t he know that once something is on the internet it can haunt you forever?
