NHL Goon Becomes Bank Robber
Patrick Cote finished his NHL career with 377 penalty minutes and just three points. If his life were a novel, readers might call this foreshadowing.
A Canadian judge sentenced the former NHL goon to thirty months in the penalty box earlier this week for two bank robberies. After cops in Ontario pinched Cote for driving a stolen car in May, he confessed to knocking off banks in Brossard and Saint Constant.
Cote played for the Dallas Stars, Nashville Predators, and Edmonton Oilers.
