Yesterday afternoon news broke that former Montreal Canadiens draft pick and NHL Head Coach Kevin Constantine was in some hot water. Early reports suggested that Constantine was facing an investigation just weeks after being hired. Constantine was hired by the Wenatchee Wild this summer and is already finding himself in trouble.

Being in hot water is nothing new to Constantine who has been suspended twice in the past.
Worth noting that Kevin Constantine, who was just hired in July, has been previously suspended twice as a coach, including in the WHL.

The first was with Everett, when he was suspended four games and fined $5,000 for making his players (including scratched players who weren't dressed) eat their post-game meal and ride the bus home several hours in full gear.

The other was with the Flames in the NHL, when he and Guy Lapointe were both suspended after they went after a fan in the crowd.

The WHL made the official announcement today:
The Western Hockey League announced today, Kevin Constantine, Head Coach of the Wenatchee Wild, has been suspended pending an independent investigation into alleged violations of WHL Regulations and Policies.

Constantine was suspended on Sunday after the WHL's independent reporting channel received a complaint regarding his conduct. Constantine is not permitted to have any contact with any member of the organization, including players, while the matter is being investigated.

Constantine at this time is presumed innocent until proven guilty upon the completion of this investigation, but that veteran coach will but he behind the bench for the foreseeable future.
