Former NHL player Patrick Cote has been sentenced to 30 months in prison after admitting to a pair of bank robberies, according to Montreal radio station CJAD.
Cote was reportedly questioned by police in May after he was caught driving a stolen car. It was during questioning that he admitted to robbing a pair of suburban Montreal banks.
According to CJAD, Cote also has a criminal record for "armed assault, drug offenses and other charges."
Cote was a second-round pick of the Dallas Stars in 1995. Between 1995 and 2001, Cote played for the Stars, Predators and Oilers.
After his NHL career, Cote played in a low-level Quebec-based minor league called the North American Hockey League.
