A few more details:
Ladislav Scurko (2004 6th round pick of Philadelphia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ladislav_Scurko
) confessed today to a 1+ year-old murder of 26-year old hockey referee. The victim was stabbed 14 times, and the media speculate the referee owed Scurko a lot of money (so it had nothing to do with hockey).
Incredibly, following the murder (which happened in January 2008) Scurko spent this season playing for Slovak Extraleague champion HC Kosice (they beat Palffy's HC Skalica in the finals), scoring 13 points (7+6) in 70 games (http://www.szlh.sk/statistiky/c-090000_ ... %216112423
) and the teammates describe him as a great and a funny guy in the locker room throughout this season...
