Things will only get better for Nikolai Zherdev — if he can make it through the week from hell, that is.
The former NHL winger is going through some rough times, to say the least, as Yahoo! Sports’ Puck Daddy recently uncovered. In Russia this week, Zherdev was involved in a “physical altercation at the Barvikha Luxury Village hotel” — also known as a “bar fight” here in the States — before crashing his new black Bentley which is priced at roughly $300,000.
As if that weren’t enough, locals then reportedly tagged up said automobile with obscenities because of his ridiculous behavior.
Tough week, eh? Well, to top things off, his wife is filing for divorce, so he’s got that going on, too.
Zherdev was the Blue Jackets’ No. 4 overall pick in 2003 and made stops in both New York (Rangers) and Philadelphia before heading back overseas to join the KHL.
So, what was it you were complaining about earlier?
