Former Bruins tough guy Stan Jonathan is in a bit of trouble.
Jonathan has been charged with criminal negligence causing a death after a hunting accident on a native reservation in Ontario.
The victim in the case, Peter Kosid, was struck by a shot allegedly fired by Jonathan while he was bow hunting, according to Sun Media. Jonathan was not in the same hunting party as Kosid and reportedly shot him from about 375 meters away (over 1,200 feet). Kosid was in hunting camouflage according to the report.
Jonathan played eight seasons in the NHL and accumulated 751 penalty minutes in that time with the Boston Bruins and Pittsburgh Penguins (just 19 games there). Jonathan did also have two seasons with more than 20 goals as well as being a prolific fighter in the 1970s and 80s.
