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."

incest and all that is horrible, but I too have seen false accusations many, many times from kids, future ex's. So from my point of view, this man is innocent until proven guilty.



just this woman's point of view.



ps. electriczipper, you like lashing out at people that don't agree with you and don't judge hastely huh?

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

Suesh... it means that he isn't a child molester... she's an adult. It's an incestuous assault... that is if it actually occurred. Innocent until proven guilty folks.....

Whatta mess    

#33 just because someone is a Kings fan doesn't mean anything but that we actually know who the guy is and know his work. Regardless of my appreciation for the Kings, I still hope it's some sort of misunderstanding. I reserve judgement until the rest of the story comes to light.

electriczipper, never said that and you know it. I said don't judge until you have all the facts. If you were being accused, you'd want it that way. Just easier to be judgmental until you are there.

I have a couple of problems with this accusation. The young lady said she didn't give him permission which indicates that if he had asked, she have said yes? Second one is this. She 21 years old so why was she at the motel with him in the first place? There is something fishy with this. If he did infact sexualy assault her, then he needs to be put away. If not, this young lady needs to be held accountable for this lie.
