This is some strange, sad news.
Monday, the Langley Advance reported that former Washington Capitals enforcer Stephen Peat was arrested in British Columbia after allegedly attempting to set his father Walter’s home on fire following an argument.
Peat spent parts of six seasons in the Washington Capitals organization. He was a veteran of 33 NHL fights, putting up some of the most brutal bouts in the team’s history. He had a bunch of heart and was a huge fan favorite.
Details of the incident are scant–much like Peat goals.
