There are reports that the banana-thrower has been arrested. It was, allegedly, a twenty-five year old guy.

Moorhouse is scheduled to make his first court apperance later this week. Investigators have released no further details at this point surrounding the allegations. It's unclear whether Police believe the person who threw the banana at Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds, who's black, was intended it as a racist act. Investigators also haven't said how or where the suspect obtained the projectile. It wasn't immediately clear what action, if any, might be taken by the John Labatt Centre. In the days following the incident, officials had previously suggested the culprit - if found guilty - could face a lifetime ban from the facility. The arrest comes days after Police confirmed their involvement in the investigation on Monday.


Damphousse wants a settlement against his estranged wife.

Former NHL star Vincent Damphousse sat down with a Crown prosecutor on Tuesday to discuss the criminal case against his estranged wife.

Allana Henderson faces one count of theft and one of assaulting Damphousse with a weapon. The offences allegedly occurred last March.

But Damphousse is also facing six counts of assault against the 40-year-old Henderson stemming from incidents that allegedly occurred between 2008 and early 2011.


 The Fourth Period has a preview for the Colorado Avalanche.

It's safe to say that many around the NHL have no idea what to expect from the Avalanche season, much in the same way that fans weren't sure what they would glimpse at training camp; the same pushover team from before or something new and competitive.

The first shift out, forward Cody McLeod made it known what fans could expect this coming year. With a few powerful strides, the man in black hammered his opponent into the boards, sending schockwaves down the line. As the crushing sound of constant checking shook spectators to the bone, it was certain: Colorado would be tougher.
