Barnaby Lost His Job With ESPN Monday Night.

Former NHL forward Matthew Barnaby was fired from his job as an ESPN analyst Monday, after he was found driving without a front tire in the early hours and charged with Driving While Impared.

Barnaby, 38, failed several sobriety tests and refused a breath test after being pulled over his damaged Porsche Cayenne by Erie County Sheriffs in Clarence, New York. His car had significant front end damage and was causing sparks from the bumper hitting the ground.

Barnaby was arrested and charged and his license was revoked. He was ordered to return to Town of Clarence Court. After the incident, ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz said, “We spoke with Matthew and informed him we terminated his ESPN contract, effective immediately.”

Law enforcement officials said Barnaby is facing the possibility of being deported back to his native Canada because he was issued with a one-year adjournment in contemplation of dismissal related to a domestic incident with his ex-wife in May. He was required to to perform 500 hours of community service and attend counseling following the incident with his wife.

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page:
