NHL Exec Accused of Bashing Woman After Loss

3/4/2010 1:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Losing in the Stanley Cup playoffs can be a painful experience -- especially for the woman who claims the GM of the Anaheim Ducks smacked her with a chair after the team lost in Game 7 last year.



The woman -- Rachel Paris -- is suing the team, as well as their GM Bob Murray, claiming Murray went into a "fit of rage" after the Ducks lost to the Detroit Red Wings last year.

According to the lawsuit, filed Tuesday in Michigan, Murray "picked up a high back chair and struck [Rachel] thereby knocking [Rachel] to the ground."

Rachel claims the Ducks are on the hook because "they had a duty to ensure that proper measures and protocols were in place to help curtail Bob Murray's violent and aggressive nature."

Rachel, who says she was working as a TV broadcast stage manager at the time, also claims she suffered "severe bodily injuries." She's demanding more than $75,000 in damages.

Calls to the Ducks have not been returned.

The Ducks havent made the Stanley Cup finals since 2006-2007 and they won. This article is messed up.

You go to a hockey game and Wrestlemania breaks out! Can TMZ find any footage of the incident so we can "Go to the videotape!".

Can I get a job @ TMZ as a fact checker or something? I mean get it together...Isn't your boss Mr. Lawyer..Mr. Entertainment lawyer? Do you fact check anything? Instead of prepping yourself to be on tv do the minimal amount of due diligence you can and at least get part of the story straight. Sad. Seeing the people from TMZ on tv it actually is no surprise they have no clue and would get this story totally wrong.

I was really into the Hawks in the 80s when Bob Murray played for them. He always seemed like one of the biggest gentlemen. Of course I do not know him personally.

If she was just going after the guy then i'd say bravo, but she's trying to make the organization pay, too. screw her. hope she lost a tooth.

I don't know him personally but Bob Murray comes across as a very level headed individual in interviews. I think her claim that the team is somehow responsible is absolute garbage.

Wow. A whole year PLUS to file suit?

What? Couldn't make the mortgage this month?

And who in their right minds would ever think the Ducks could best the Wings? Irrational and Unconceivable.

Did she file a police report when the incident initially happened? If someone smacked me with a chair am I pretty sure I would get the police involved. Something seems off with this story and the timeline.
