Kasperi Kapanen got in trouble with the law for aggravated drunk driving and he has now released a public statement.

Kapanen Releases Statement

St. Louis Blues forward was arrested for aggravated drunk driving in Finland last month and the news became public just today. In response to the backlash, Kapanen released a statement.

"Last month I made an unacceptable error in judgement and take full responsibility for my actions. I offer my apologies to my family, the Blues organization, my teammates, and the fans. I understand the severity of my mistake and am committed to doing everything I can to earn back their trust." - Kasperi Kapanen

Blues GM Doug Armstrong also released a statement alongside Kapanen:

"Today we became aware of the incident involving Kasperi and I have spoken with him and his agent. We are disappointed in his lapse of judgement and are entrusting him to make the necessary changes to avoid putting himself in a similar situation in the future." - Doug Armstrong

Kapanen was traded to the Blues last season and scored 8 goals and 14 points in 23 games with the Blues (28 goal and 50 point pace). His best years came with the Toronto Maple Leafs where he had a 20-goal campaign.

The 2014 1st round pick will now look to change his future actions and ensure he puts nobody else's lives in danger.
