Revealed: The Startling Reason Valeri Nichushkin Had to Leave the Avalanche

Many rumors have circulated in the previous few days about Valeri Nichushkin, who was hauled off of the team by security.

There has been an important development in his situation.

According to Frank Seravalli, Nichushkin was involved in an alcohol-related incident.

We don’t know if the Avs’ winger will be available for the upcoming games, but if the issue is related to alcohol, the Player Assistance Program will most likely issue a statement clarifying the situation in the coming days.

There have been no reports or details released about Nichushkin entering the Players Assistance Program or getting team discipline. However, this might be a major distraction for the team.

Nichushkin’s contract with the Avalanche expires in seven years, so whatever the situation is, it must be handled by all parties involved.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
