Val Nichushkin had an early exit from this year's Stanley Cup playoffs due to what the Avalanche listed as "personal reasons". As more details emerged, we learned that a woman was found heavily intoxicated in Nichushkin's hotel room, and had to be brought to a hospital. We now have police bodycam footage of the incident, and it doesn't look good for Nichushkin.

Following the release of new footage of the incident, we've gotten a closer look at how the situation was handled, and how team doctors approached the woman. Avalanche team physician Brad Changstrom can be seen conversing with a police officer, where he tells him the following.

"We were trying to get her out of the room and she was very clearly intoxicated. Very clearly, I could not send her in an Uber due to her safety." - Changstrom



According to the footage, the woman was so incredibly intoxicated that she assaulted police officers who attempted to get her clothing. The woman, who claimed to be a student at the University of Arizona, reportedly attempted to jump off of a hotel gurney during the incident.


Avalanche team staff had Nichushkin removed from the site immediately.

We'll have more information as soon as it's available, so stay tuned.
