    Kings winger Jarret Stoll arrested Friday in Las Vegas with cocaine and ecstasy.

    Kings' Jarret Stoll arrested in Vegas on suspicion of drug possession - LA Times

    And one of the other news sites I saw last night brings up the question journalist standards (I know, those are long gone). Its headline said something like: Erin Andrews' boyfriends, Jarret Stoll, arrested etc. etc. etc. She wasn't even there.

    Just shocked. Kings player busted for coke. I imagine Richards, Carter and a few others weren't far away.

    Hockey's dirty little secret is how common this is.

    When I went to Wet Republic a few years ago, I was shocked coke and X weren't handed out at the door.

    Regarding the headline, yeah, I don't think she deserves to be brought into this. But when you date one of these guys and he gets popped, I guess that's the course of doing business.

    And sad that more people know who she is than her NHL-playing BF.

    Very true. I can see the headline writer's thinking. Who is this guy, he's pretty unknown as a hockey player. Ahhhhh, but he is Erin Andrews' boyfriend. Again, not terribly fair to her but the way of the world.

    He's not exactly a nobody, with 58 playoff games and 26 playoff points the last 3 years on a 2-time champion.

    She's a sports reporter at a major network. She's dating an athlete in one of the big four sports, though not one she covers. Is it fair? Probably not. But it comes with the territory.

    I've barely heard of him, and I work in sports. Admittedly, I don't follow the NHL as a whole too much. But I would think he is relatively not well known.

    TMZ is working really hard to see how deep she is involved.

    She's either got some serious questions for her BF or she's got some serious questions to answer, unfortunately.
