Mike Hoffman isn’t an Ottawa Senator anymore. Yea. The team confirmed he’s been traded to the San Jose Sharks.
TRADE: The #Sens have acquired forward Mikkel Boedker, defenceman Julius Bergman and a sixth-round choice in the 2020 NHL Draft from the San Jose Sharks in exchange for Mike Hoffman, Cody Donaghy and Ottawa’s fifth-round pick in 2020: https://t.co/5LnYzNZv6Q

And this all comes out just a few days after Melinda Karlsson, the wife of Sens Captain Erik Karlsson, claimed that Hoffman’s fiancée had been cyberbullying her. Apparently Monika Caryk went as far as bringing the Karlsson’s stillborn son into the insults. Both Hoffman and Caryk say they didn’t do anything of the sort.
But no matter what the truth is, this is an important reminder for us all to think about the impacts of cyberbullying. IT’S JUST NOT OK.
Kids are growing up with a constant stream of social media, and bullying has followed them into the digital world. So talk to them about it. Teach them to be kind, and to not speak if they don’t have anything nice to say.
