Just when you thought things couldn't get any worse in Ottawa, they have.
Erik Karlsson's wife, Melinda Karlsson, has filed for a restraining order against Mike Hoffman's longtime girlfriend.
Melinda is alleging that Monika Caryk carried out a campaign of harassment since November of 2017. While the application states it started in November of 2017, since the news broke multiple former Sens wives have spoken out saying the harassment has been happening for a long time (Hoffman and Karlsson have been teammates since 2011). The wives of Andrew Hammond, Kyle Turris, Daniel Winnik and more have taken to Twitter to speak out against Monika Caryk.
From the restraining order application:
"Monika Caryk has uttered numerous statements wishing my unborn child dead," Melinda's statement to the court reads. "She also uttered that she wished I was dead and that someone should 'take out' my husband's legs to 'end his career.'
"Monika Caryk has posted over 1,000 negative and derogatory statements about me as a professional."
Hoffman's agent claims the team has been aware of the problems since the beginning of the year and made it clear that both players and wives can't co-exist on the same team anymore.
"What we’ve indicated to Pierre is that, and let’s call a spade a spade, it would be very difficult for both parties - both Erik and Mike as well as the wives and the fiancees - to co-exist in the same wives’ room and the same dressing room," Robert Hooper told the Ottawa Citizen.
