After a night out at a bar, you need to have a plan for getting back home safe and sound. A Florida Panthers prospect did so Sunday night, but found himself at someone else’s home.
23-year-old Scott Timmins, a sixth-round draft pick of the Panthers in 2009, was arrested Monday morning after he was found asleep on the couch in a house belonging to San Antonio resident Benjamin Garza. KENS explains how the situation went down.
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.
The situation could have escalated much more had Garza been home with his wife, according to Chris Peters of Eye on Hockey.
Garza explained to reporter Karen Grace that upon facing Timmins, he told the Panthers prospect, “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.”
Timmins played for the Rampage in a loss to the Oklahoma City Barons on Sunday night. Timmins has recorded 9 goals and 16 points in 50 games for the Rampage this year. He has not played for the Panthers since making his NHL debut back on Feburary 26th.
Moral of the story: leave the drunken antics to the movie actors.

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.
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...
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.
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...

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.

Impressive play on the road has the Montreal Canadiens atop the Eastern Conference.
