New information surfaces regarding Mike Babcock and the incident that forced his resignation

Published September 20, 2023 at 12:49

With Babcock officially done in Columbus, we're beginning to work our way through the aftermath of it all, and of course, some new information is coming to light.

As if it wasn't bad enough that Babcock was confirmed to have gone through the phones of his players, some new information revealed that not all of these meetings had occurred in team facilities. One incident actually reportedly occurred at Babcock's home.

According to a report shared on Reddit and later shared by Pete Blackburn, Babcock had invited a younger player to his home to have lunch. Babcock proceeded to go through his phone before kicking him out without even having a meal.

Most surprisingly, apparently several of these incidents happened at Babcock's house. In at least one of the incidents reported to Whitney, a young player was invited for lunch, told to take out his phone, had Babcock flip through his photos and then told him to leave.. without lunch. He sounds like a sociopath.

We know about the infamous Mitch Marner "list" scandal. We know about Babcock intentionally scratching Mike Modano, preventing him from joining the 1,500 game club. We know about Babcock scratching Jason Spezza ahead of his Leafs debut with tons of family in the building for his homecoming. We know about the incidents involving Mike Commodore and Chris Chelios. We also know about the incidents involving Johan Franzen. Babcock's hit list is seemingly endless. I don't know about you, but I'm glad to know that Babcock's reign of terror is over in the NHL.
