Ex-NHL Star Accused of Sex Crime Against Daughter

5/21/2010 1:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mark Hardsy ex NHL StarA former L.A. Kings hockey player-turned-assistant coach was arrested this morning in Washington D.C. for allegedly sexually abusing a 21-year-old woman -- his own daughter.

TMZ has learned 51-year-old Mark Hardy is in police custody after his daughter told cops that Mark "put his hand down [her] shorts and touched her genital area without her permission."

Hardy was arrested at the legendary Mayflower Hotel in D.C. -- where the alleged incident was said to have occurred early this morning. He's set to face a judge later today on the charge of misdemeanor sexual abuse.

UPDATE: TMZ has just received a statement from L.A. Kings saying simply, "We are aware of the charge.  Due to the legal nature of this matter, we will not have any additional comments at this time."

Creepy if true. If a child molester, why would he wait for her to be in her twenties?

Yeah, right, Ed. You are so racist and ignorant, too! Did you forget about Tiger Woods, Charles Barkley, Kobe Bryant, Lawrence Taylor, The Washington DC Snipers, Coral Eugene Watts, the Carr Brothers, the Christian-Newsom murderers. Hey, watch "Black Serial Killers" on youtube - it will educate you!

I know a lot of people in the hockey community, and everyone says he is a stand up guy, who is very nice. I hope this accusation is false.

#4 All I have to say to you is...Oprah and Monique, figure it out.



Did this happen recently because the girl is 21 not a little baby or toddler. Was she sleeping because it is hard to put your hands down someones pants if they are moving..duh! This all sounds strange to me.

"I know a lot of people in the hockey community, and everyone says he is a stand up guy, who is very nice. I hope this accusation is false."



That means nothing. You remind me of the neighbors of serial killers who, when interviewed on TV, always say "he was such a nice, polite person".



Many men are "nice" to other men but have major issues with women.



It remains to be seen whether the allegations are true but, unfortunately, more often than not they are.
