In a time where we need no more Oilers (current and former) in the blotter, troubling news comes regarding former Oiler Captain Jason Smith.
Former Captain Jason Smith was arrested yesterday in Calgary under charges of domestic assault against his wife and daughter stemming from an August 10th incident. Smith is also alleged to have confined his wife at some point during this time.
Smith has been released, so long as he follows a court order to stay at least five blocks away from his family at this time.
Smith is remembered as – well, you know who Jason Smith is. I cannot express to you in words how much I hope these allegations are false. A guilty verdict of any sort would surely tarnish the good-guy image of the man affectionately known as “Gator” .
Smith is to return to court on September 17th.
