According to a report from KENS 5, Florida Panthers prospect and San Antonio Rampage player Scott Timmins was arrested on Monday morning for breaking into a home and sleeping on the couch. Timmins is accused of breaking into the home of Benjamin Garza after a night out with his teammates, but Garza was not home when his wife and three children found Timmins sleeping on the couch.
KENS 5 reports:
The police report states that when Garza’s wife found Timmins sitting on her couch, she asked him who he was, to which he responded, “Don’t worry about that.”
“He was yelling, ‘What are you doing in my house,’” said Garza. “My wife said, ‘You need to get the hell out of here,’” added Garza. She was able to escape through a back door with her kids.
Benjamin Garza said that it is a good thing that Timmins wasn’t home when he came home because he said that when he faced Timmins he told him, “You’re lucky I wasn’t here because I would’ve put a bullet between your eyes and it would’ve been over for you.”
Obviously threatening to kill someone is just as serious as breaking and entering and I don’t see this situation going away anytime soon. Timmins is a 2009 6th round pick by the Florida Panthers but has been playing for their AHL team the San Antonio Rampage. Through 50 games, the forward prospect has nine goals and seven assists. Timmins has only played in one NHL game so far, which was on February 26th against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
If this situation plays out the way I think it will play out, I don’t think Timmins will be playing in the NHL anytime soon.

Florida Panthers prospect and current San Antonio Rampage forward, Scott Timmins, goes hard on his days off.

Scott Timmins is making the most of his time in San Antonio, getting drunk, passing out on strangers' couches and getting arrested. Ouch.
HOME SWEET HOME
Scott Timmins made it home from the bar after a night of partying with teammates in San Antonio. Unfortunately for the Florida Panthers minor league prospect, the home he made it to was not his.
Week after week, Florida Panthers general manager Dale Tallon denied that his team would sell off center Stephen Weiss (and his expiring contract) and other assets before the trade deadline.Then Weiss suffered a season-ending wrist injury, the Panthers continued struggling and reality set in for the franchise. This season was just not to be. As the South Florida Sun-Sentinel notes...
The old “I thought it was my house” story has made a comeback. Scott Timmins of the AHL’s San Antonio Rampage reportedly went down that road early Monday morning, as KENS 5 in San Antonio is reporting that the 23-year-old broke into a family’s home after leaving a bar and took a seat on the couch. Homeowner Benjamin Garza, who was not home at the time, was none too pleased...
In a condensed NHL season where sellers might be tough to come by, the Florida Panthers are apparently willing to listen to "all offers" now that the team has fallen back in the playoff race.
The report, as seen in the Calgary Sun, mentions that the Panthers are willing to deal just about any player on the roster, excluding Jonathan Huberdeau, Erik Gudbranson, Jakob...

Officials with the AHL affiliate of the Florida Panthers didn't immediately comment Wednesday on the 23-year-old player's status.

It is no secret that the the Florida Panthers are sellers in a major way, but one player with a large contract right now who may be surprisingly on the move is Brian Campbell. Campbell is viewed as a quarterback of sorts and is still one of the better transitional defensemen in the game with the ability to start rushes with laser precise passes to speedy forwards...
So it should...
SUNRISE, Fla. This was the game Anders Lindback and Jacob Markstrom mimicked during their street hockey games in Sweden.
And like the typical contest held in front of their childhood homes, someone walked away with bragging rights.
Tuesday night was Lindback's turn, only the stakes were higher, as he bested Markstrom in their first meeting on NHL ice.
The Madden Curse is real, the question begs, does it just skip over a player from time to time? Calvin Johnson had a record breaking season, the Lions were terrible, but that is almost every year.
John Madden was out in LA and he believes the curse is now broken, but I still would be a little worried, if I was a NFL player appearing on the cover.

An AHLer is lucky to be alive after allegedly breaking into a San Antonio home in a drunken stupor early Monday morning before refusing to leave.
