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.

He's Canadian...not that that matters. However in court it will, as Canadians wining the Olympics and restoring so much in humanity up there will count as having a motive to use physical force when things dont go a Canadians way, hockey wise. Enter Exhibit One---Bob Murray. Who was a violent player as well when a Chicago Blackhawk.

Judgment for the Plantiff. Smart Duck Attorneys will settle out of court ahead of some ugly publicity for Murray and Canada.

All it takes is one witness for that ditz producer to say the Canadian guy got all mad when things didnt go his way and hit me with a chair...1 million quick ones.

We should all be so creative...

RE: #25 John - "Most of you are wrong. The Ducks DID lose to the Wings in game 7 last year. OF THE CONFERENCE SEMIFINALS! The article never says Stanley Cup FINALS. It says Stanley Cup PLAYOFFS. But hey, this is what I've come to expect from Californians. Go Red Wings!"

Exactly what I was going to say! You're awesome! GO WINGS!!!

Wow, lots of dumb hockey fans around here, huh. The Wings beat the Ducks in the second round of the playoffs after almost being upset by the 8th seed. All 4 rounds of the playoffs are called The Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Red Wings and Penguins played in the Stanley Cup Finals games. That's kind of sad, hockey fans being shown up by a bunch of celebrity gossip queens.
