New York Rangers general manager Jeff Gorton said on Monday that defenseman Tony DMJ will no longer wear his team uniform.
The day before, no apology had been filed after being made available the day before at DMJ. However, it was clear that the 25-year-old was not in line with the company’s plans. Gorton has stated that the full-back has not agreed to be cut twice by his head coach David Quinn this season.
“He’s not only a bad start at the club. I’m surprised it’s so far, but it’s our decision and we’re ready to move on,” the CEO told a news conference.
According to The Athletic, the hockey player got into an argument in the hall with his teammate Alexander Georgiev, leading to the club’s locker room moments after losing 5-4 overtime to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday.
“I said if his name comes back [dans d’autres incidents], He will be put on amnesty … I think I have to be true to my word, the word of the company, ”Gorton said.
He said the DMJ would be more involved in a deal, but the Rangers were not “talking” about terminating the player’s contract.
“It was a decision we made as a company,” Quinn said. In 24 hours we can be a little clearer and talk differently about this situation. ”
After the company closed the account of former US President Donald Trump, the DMJ also got into trouble for criticizing the social network Twitter. The hockey player expressed his interest in the social network parlor.
