Thirty days in jail for Khabibulin

Thirty days in jail for Khabibulin

28 Jul 2011 | Petr Polák

Edmonton Oilers veteran goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin is going to serve a 30-day prison sentence for driving under the influence of alcohol and speeding.

The incident happened in February 2010 and Khabibulin was faced with the possibility of up to six months in prison.

Although Judge B. Monte Morgan sentenced Khabibulin to the shortest possible sentence of 30 days, Khabibulin lodged an appeal. However, the goaltender's lawyer is now stating that his client will face up to the penalty and enter prison.

He has to spend half of the sentence in prison; the last 15 days he can spend at home with the condition of wearing a localization bracelet. He will able to leave home for up to 12 hours per day.

The latter condition will allow Khabibulin to join the Oilers in their summer training camp. "Once I have completed these obligations, I eagerly anticipate a timely return to Edmonton for training camp, where I will strive to be the best player, teammate, and citizen possible," Khabibulin said.
