Nikolai Khabibulin, an Edmonton Oilers goalie, was convicted in a drunk-driving case and sentenced to 30 days in prison. However, because Khabibulin appealed the case, the sentence, fines, and rehab programs are on hold pending appeal.

According to the report on the arrest:

"The arresting police officer noticed Khabibulin's eyes were bloodshot and watery, and his speech was slow. Khabibulin agreed to perform field sobriety tests and eventually consented to a blood test, which revealed his blood alcohol content to be 0.164—more than twice the legal limit."

Not good.

Khabibulin is on the long-term injured list, so he will be out for the rest of the season regardless, but this does not bode well for the athlete.
