A Vermont hockey star is in trouble with the law. John LeClair will be in court next week to face a drunk driving charge. Vermont state police pulled over the former BFA St. Albans, UVM and NHL great on October 24th.
The early-morning incident on Interstate-89 in Milton is the St. Albans native's second drunk driving charge. In 1990, LeClair pleaded no contest after prosecutors reduced the charge to careless and negligent driving.
LeClair was placed on waivers last December by the Pittsburgh Peguins and he has not played in the NHL since then.
