Erin Andrews

Did She Just Take a Shot

... at Jarret Stoll?!

4/21/2015 6:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Erin Andrews may have sent a passive aggressive message to her NHL star boyfriend Monday night -- seemingly chiding him for his Vegas drug arrest ... and it all went down on "Dancing with the Stars."

Erin was interviewing Willow Shields after her wild performance -- and asked her if she ever busted out similar moves on Spring Break. 

When Willow gave her super boring answer -- "I just sit at home and watch movies all week" -- Andrews gave a very interesting response:

"I feel like some other people should learn from you."

Paying attention Jarret Stoll?

EXCLUSIVE

0420_jarrett_stoll_la_gettyJarret Stoll had been raging in Vegas with several of his L.A. Kings teammates in the hours before the NHL star was busted for trying to bring a BUNCH of cocaine and molly to a pool party ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Multiple sources confirm ... the Vegas vacation was essentially an unofficial end-of-the-season celebration to unwind and party as a team.

As far as how many Kings were part of the festivities -- sources tell us there were more than a dozen people from the organization on hand ... many of whom continued to party in Vegas throughout the weekend even AFTER Stoll was arrested. 

We know Drew Doughty and Martin Jones were part of the Vegas crew -- but they were NOT arrested or accused of any wrongdoing whatsoever. In fact, the only person who got into any trouble was Stoll

We reached out to the players and the Kings organization -- but no one wanted to comment on this specific story.

NHL star Jarret Stoll tried to smuggle an 8-ball of cocaine and 8 grams of Molly into a Vegas pool party ... by hiding them in his board shorts ... this according to the police report obtained by TMZ Sports

The L.A. Kings player was busted around 4:30 PM on Friday while going through the security area -- that EVERYONE goes through -- on the way in to the Wet Republic pool party at the MGM Grand. 

Despite the sign CLEARLY warning people that they will be patted down on the way inside, Stoll took his chances ... and a Wet Republic security guard found a pink baggie with white powder and numerous "gel-caps" with an off-white powder inside consistent with the drug "Molly." 

According to the police report ... when asked if the powder inside the baggie was coke, Stoll said, "Yes."

Cops say Stoll had 3.3 grams of coke ... and 8.1 grams of Molly. 

Stoll -- who's famously dating "Dancing with the Stars" co-host Erin Andrews -- was transported to a nearby jail ... where he was booked for drug possession

L.A. Kings superstar Jarret Stoll -- boyfriend of Erin Andrews -- was arrested in Vegas on suspicion on drug possession ... for allegedly bringing cocaine and ecstasy to a Vegas pool party.

According to local reports, 32-year-old Stoll was busted Friday at the Wet Republic pool party at the MGM Grand.

Stoll was reportedly taken into custody by the Las Vegas Metro Police Department. Unclear if Andrews was with him at the time.

Stoll was taken to Clark County Detention Center -- where he was booked. He was released on a $5,000 bail.

Stoll was clearly in Vegas to unwind after the Kings were eliminated from contention from the NHL playoffs. 

The Kings have issued a statement saying, "We are aware of police reports out of Clark County, Nevada regarding Jarret Stoll."

"Our organization is concerned and has begun conducting a thorough internal investigation. While we continue to actively gather facts, we are withholding further comment at this time."

The reign of the NFL is over ... long live HOCKEY ... so says one of the founding member of Run DMC. Darryl McDaniels

NHL's Jack Johnson

Pawn In Ex-NFL Star's Ponzi Scheme

... Investigators Say

4/7/2015 11:54 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0407-jack-johnson-will-allen-GETTY-02As if NHL star Jack Johnson hasn't had enough drama over the past year -- now, officials say he was a pawn in a Ponzi scheme allegedly run by a former NFL star ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

As we previously reported, ex-Miami Dolphins cornerback Will Allen has been accused of stealing millions of dollars from investors who thought they were funding his business of loaning money to pro athletes. 

Now, according to docs obtained by TMZ Sports ... officials say one of the athletes he told people he was loaning cash to was Johnson ... who had reportedly gone broke after his parents allegedly spent his fortune. 

Johnson's story made national headlines -- since he had made more than $18 million in his NHL career at that point. 

According to court docs, Allen and his business partner told investors they were gathering cash to make a $5.65 million loan to Johnson ... who is currently in the middle of a $30 million contract with the Columbus Blue Jackets. 

But officials say Allen and his partner lied to his investors -- because the loan to Johnson was only for $3.4 million ... and instead, they used the rest of the money to shower themselves in riches. 

Allen and his partner have been charged with fraud. 

Meanwhile, 28-year-old Johnson is wrapping up a decent season with the Blue Jackets ... and could sign another big contract somewhere down the line. 

Stanley Cup

Banned From Strip Clubs

... Says Cup's Guardian

EXCLUSIVE

The Stanley Cup will never make it rain -- ever -- because the most famous trophy in pro sports is NOT ALLOWED inside strip clubs anymore ... this according to the Cup's official NHL guardian. 

TMZ Sports spoke with Mike Bolt -- who was appointed to be official "Keeper of the Cup" back in 2000 -- and the guy says Stanley's days of chillin' with adult entertainers ended in 1994. 

So why the rule? According to legend ... the NHL put its foot down after Mark Messier brought it to Scores in NYC after winning the Cup ... and exposed it to some naughty behavior.

"Those days are over," Bolt told us when asked specifically about the policy regarding strip clubs. 

And while Bolt didn't exactly confirm or deny the rumors surrounding Messier -- he notes that the '94 Rangers were the last team to celebrate without the "every player gets a day with the cup" policy.

Check out the clip -- Bolt also tells some GREAT celebrity stories involving the Cup ... stories that didn't require a 2 drink minimum. 

Sarah Jessica Parker

Bored Off Her Ice

Reads Book During NHL Game

0325-sjp-gallery-launch-01Sarah Jessica Parker found a nice quiet place to curl up with her book Tuesday night ... the NY Rangers game ... where the actress took in several pages without anyone bothering her. 

While the Rangers fell to the Kings 4-2, SJP was burying her nose in a book called "Astonish Me" by Maggie Shipstead. 

The book is about a Soviet ballet star who defects to the United States in 1975 ... and clearly Parker found it more riveting than watching a bunch of Slovakian hockey stars slapping pucks at each other for 60 minutes.

Erin Andrews

Not Engaged

Despite Massive Diamond Ring

3/17/2015 12:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0317-erin-andrews-instagramIt looks like an engagement ring ... she's flaunting it like an engagement ring ... but the rock on Erin Andrews' finger is NOT an engagement ring. 

Andrews has been dating L.A. Kings superstar Jarret Stoll for a while ... after she posted a pic with that huge diamond before last night's "Dancing with the Stars" premiere, there was buzz that he finally popped the question.

Turns out ... the ring wasn't from Stoll -- it was from wardrobe ... specifically so Erin would look "blinged out" for the big show.

But the ring was no cheap prop -- according to E!, it was a special asscher-cut diamond ring that weighed in at 2.01 carats with 22 baguette diamonds and 88 other microset diamonds.

Looked good though ... just sayin', Jarret.
