In Topic: Mike Richard's Contract Terminated (Not Bought Out)

Looks like he was arrested on border, going INTO Canada with oxycotin pills. He didnt have prescription for it so cud be charged with smuggling.

Alleged

Whichever side of the border he ended up at (and if he was arrested by the mounties, he must have been in Canada) he will not be able to travel to and from United States. Which is a significant hardship for an NHL player. So that would probably be the basis for Kings' terminating his contract, since he can't travel normally with the team. Convinient for them, but probably justified, so the NHLPA may not be able to reverse the contract termination.

Not with illicit drugs no... 

 

Face it, he probably did something that's usually a slap on the wrist but the LA Kings used it as an opportunity to terminate the contract. Works out perfectly for them.

Once one is caught with illegal drugs at the border, US ICE officials typically refuse to admit such a person to the US in the future and they don't need a formal reason, such as a criminal conviction, to refuse entry.

So a "material breach of contract" is that he no longer is allowed to cross US-Canada border?
