From juiced-up runners and sex scandals to dog-abusing quarterbacks and evil figure skaters, we reveal the most infamous sports shames of all time
A former Toronto Maple Leafs and Hamilton Bulldog goalie is in a U.S. jail for 60 days after sexting with a 13-year-old girl and attempting to meet her at a hotel.
Michael Minard, 37, a former assistant coach in the American Hockey League, pleaded no contest to sexual misconduct charges in Maine, and will spend the next 10 years on the Sex Offenders Registry.
Minard moved to Hamilton after being fired from his assistant coaching position with the AHL's Portland Pirates when the organization learned of the relationship with the teen in February, a relationship which started at an AHL game last November.
Hamilton police say they're aware of the charges, but deferred to the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) when asked if Minard would be put on a Canadian registry of sex offenders. The OPP did not immediately return phone calls.
Minard suited up as a goalie for a preseason National Hockey League game with the Toronto Maple Leafs in 2001, and played a regular season game with the Edmonton Oilers in the 1999-2000 season. He also bounced around the AHL and other leagues between 1995 and 2008, including 54 games with the Hamilton Bulldogs.
