On Sunday early morning at 3am, Zoltan Hetenyi was arrested and charged with three counts of sexual assault and one count of disorderly contact with his bail being $40,400. While in Duluth, Georgia at the Arena Tavern, eye witness accounts say that he grabbed a waitress' rear end with both hands, twice, and grabbed her breasts.
The former Nashville Predators goaltending prospect was quoted as saying, "I hate all Americans!". Also, Hetenyi yelled he hated all black people, using the "n-word".
Hetenyi was invited to the Predators' development camp in June of 2012 and was sent to the ECHL to play with the Cincinnati Cyclones. While with the Cyclones, the Hungarian native had a record of 5-4-2, a 2.43 goals against average and .913 save percentage. He was traded by the Milwaukee Admirals to the Peoria Rivermen in February in exchange for defenseman Scott Ford.
The Rivermen kept Hetenyi in ECHL to play with the Orlando Solar Bears, where he might have ended his career in. Prior to coming to the United States, Hetenyi played for Jokerit Helsinki in the SM-liiga, where he was a fan favorite.
This horrible situation will most likely be the end of a possibly successful career in North America.
