Former NHL player and current Winnipeg city councilor Thomas Steen was taken into custody on July 11 and spent a night in jail after allegedly breaching the conditions of his undertaking, according to the Winnipeg Sun.
Steen is facing two counts of assault and one count of uttering threats related to an incident that occurred on May 1. One of the conditions of his original release is that he wasn’t allowed to communicate with the woman he’s accused of assaulting and that’s what he allegedly did before his recent arrest.
The 54-year-old city councilor spent his entire 950-game NHL career with the original Winnipeg Jets and had his No. 25 retired in 1995. He is also a “Honoured Member” of the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame.
His son, Alex Steen, is a forward with the St. Louis Blues.
