Monica Vs. Melinda
Early in June 2018, Melinda Currey Karlsson filed a peace bond application (very similar to a restriction order) against Monica Caryk, who had been threatening her and her husband for most of the NHL season
“Monika Caryk has uttered numerous statements wishing my unborn child dead,” says Melinda Karlsson’s sworn statement to the court.
“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.”
Caryk denied everything, Mike also stood by her side.
“It’s been a really hard week, to be honest,” Caryk told the newspaper. “We both feel terrible for them that they have go through something like this and for us because we’re the accused.”
On June 19, the Senators announced they started a multi-player trade with the Sharks that included Mike Hoffman. The traders later traded Hoffman to the Florida Panthers.
