Former ESPN Analyst Matthew Barnaby Could Face Deportation
Recently fired ESPN hockey analyst Matthew Barnaby could face deportation to Canada after being charged with drunken driving in Buffalo, New York, according to ESPN.
The former NHL player had a previous run-in with the law due to a domestic dispute with his estranged wife in May. Barnaby was ordered to complete 500 hours of community service in order to avoid deportation as part of a plea agreement. The misdemeanor charges were also dropped. With this current charge, Barnaby has jeopardized the “adjournment in contemplation of dismissal” deal of his previous agreement, and could be deported if convicted. Barnaby joined ESPN as an analyst in 2008 after a 15-year career with the NHL in which he tallied 113 goals.
