WINNIPEG — It’s been 27 years since Dale Hawerchuk last laced up his skates for the Winnipeg Jets, but the former NHL superstar still cherishes the memories and the noise of passionate Jets fans filling the old Winnipeg Arena, and how those fans treated him both on and off the ice.
“Winnipeg is a very special place for me,” Hawerchuk said. “I went there as an 18-year-old, spent nine years there, and I married a Manitoba girl.
An ex-NHL agent has been charged by Winnipeg police after alleging defrauding former Ottawa Senators Chris Phillips and Dany Heatley out of $12 million.
Police say Stacey McAlpine, 54, used funds provided by the victims to invest on their behalf. Instead, police say McAlpine used the cash for personal business and provided both players with fraudulent account statements for their bogus investments.
