... At Canadian Border

6/30/2015 3:43 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0630-mike-richards-GETTY-01NHL officials have been notified that the Royal Canadian Mounted Police investigation into ex-L.A. Kings player Mike Richards involves the prescription drug oxycodone ... multiple sources tell TMZ Sports

Our sources say Richards was stopped while crossing from the United States into Canada on June 17th ... and we're told he was questioned about oxycodone pills, a powerful painkiller. 

For the record, Richards has NOT been charged with a crime.   

However, he has since been cut from the team for "a material breach of the requirements of his Standard Player's Contract."

We reached out to Richards' agent for comment multiple times but haven't heard back. Canadian officials refused to comment, citing privacy laws.   

But a rep for the NHL Players Association tells us, "We are in the process of reviewing the facts and circumstances of this matter, and will discuss the situation with the player in order to determine the appropriate course of action."

NHL Legend Mike Bossy

My Super Rare Puck Is On eBay

...And I Want It Back!!

5/24/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0522-mike-bossy-hockey-puck-TMZ-GETTY-01NY Islanders Hall of Famer Mike Bossy is eyeing a legendary NHL puck on eBay, but  refuses to pay a dime -- 'cause in his mind he's the rightful owner, and he's pissed someone's trying to sell it off.

Here's the deal ... in 1981, Bossy scored 50 goals in 50 games -- a feat only accomplished by 4 other players -- but about 30 years ago the treasured 50th puck slipped out of his hands.

We spoke to the eBay seller, Jake Jacobson ... a HUGE Islanders fan and former swim coach, who claims he ended up with the prized puck when Bossy's young daughter gave it to him as a thank you for her swimming lessons.

A couple years ago he contacted Bossy and offered to return it, but claims Bossy "didn't really seem interested." He says Bossy offered him a signed stick and that's about it. "He couldn't even meet. It just wasn't a good offer."

0522-hockey-puck-ebay-art-EBAY-01So, now Jacobson's gone the eBay route, and Bossy's ready to drop the gloves. The Hockey Hall of Fame and Museum -- which also wants the puck -- tells us, "Mike's position is, if the puck was mistakenly given to the seller, it's his rightful property. He shouldn't have to buy it back."

Bossy hasn't lawyered up, and Jacobson's pressing forward with the auction ... which ends Tuesday. Here's the thing ... his opening bid is $850, and he has ZERO offers.

He says he's not worried ... "I've gotten a few offers this week outside of the auction. I want a true Islanders fan to have the puck. Bossy had his chance to get it back."

Hilary Duff Divorce

Child Custody Fight On

EXCLUSIVE

0422-hilary-duff-mike-comrie-tmz-02Hilary Duff's estranged husband isn't giving up their son without a fight ... Mike Comrie just responded to her divorce filing, and is demanding joint custody. 

In the docs, the ex-hockey star says he wants to share custody of 3-year-old Luca. As we previously reported ... in her divorce petition, Hilary asked for primary physical custody of Luca -- and only wanted Mike to get visitation.

Sources connected with the couple tell us Hil is worried about Mike's parenting due to his partying ways. In fact, she filed for divorce the day after Comrie was reportedly drunkenly propositioning women at Mastro's in Bev Hills.

Comrie acknowledges they have a prenup -- just as Hilary did -- to sort out their property and support issues, but clearly ... little Luca is going to be a point of contention.

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
