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."

Here's an Oct 2005 L.A. Times article about the local high school sports scene where it mentions some success her team had in a volleyball championship:

Lets not forget Susan Smith who accused a black man for killing her children when in fact she did it, Scott Petersen (both of them), Andrea Yates, Jefferey Dalmer, Ted Bundy, David Berkowitz, Timothy McVeigh, Charles Manson, hell the list goes on and on. And if you want to talk about Tiger, lets not forger Jesse James.



The majority of serial killers are WHITE.

speaking as a victim , i want to reply to Sta. How DARE you say: Anyhoo IF this is true, I wonder what kind of situation she put herself in or he had her in where he thought he was allowed to do this??



ARE YOU FOR REAL???? do you know what it means when a person is a VICTIM of abuse? it makes it even sicker because you are suppose to be able to trust that person. no molester or rapist ever thinks they are allowed , they know beyond a shadow of doubt they are not suppose to touch their child in a sexual way. you are an extremely stupid sick dangerous person. i wonder if you've already crossed that line , or are you waiting to be put in that situation (as you so nicely put it) do you know babies get molested. i guess they were asking for it when their diaper was being changed....do everyone a favor and go crawl under a rock and don't come out. LOSER.

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!

Ed,



Google "Christian-Newsom" murders and "Wichita Massacre" - the media just doesn't publicize those black-on-white heinous murders like they do same race or white-on-black crime. Read the entire stories, and I think you'll agree that those are some of the most horrific murders in history!
