Adam Greener, currently an assistant coach/player with the Slough Jets, the 2011-2012 English Premier Ice Hockey League champions, was arrested along with two other men, following a drugs raid today by Hampshire Police. All three men have been charged with conspiring to supply cocaine and conspiring to supply amphetamine.
First, a drunk goalie, now this?
The Jets released a statement, saying they were shocked about that Greener would do such a thing.
“At this point in time we have no alternative than to suspend Adam while the police investigation is on-going and a decision and further statement will be made and issued at the conclusion of the police investigation. Our action doesn’t infer any view on the situation and is taken purely as a precaution while the situation is under investigation.”
As well as being the team’s assistant coach, Greener plays defense for the Jets, recording 6 points in 35 games to date this season. The 31 year old defenceman plays a tough, hard hitting style and is never afraid to look out for his teammates, usually racking upwards of 100 PIM a season.
