Capitals’ Brendan Leipsic is going to have a rough year whenever hockey comes back from hiatus.
On Wednesday afternoon, Leipsic’s Instagram DMs were leaked on the Internet and some of the DMs featured Leipsic mocking former and current teammates.
Here’s Leipsic calling some of his current lineman “fucking losers.”
In another DM, Leipsic mocks former teammate Tanner Pearson’s wife by calling her “fat.”
Some of the other DMs are NSFW sexual in nature and you can see the entire thread here.
The Capitals released a statement saying they were looking into the DMs and Leipsic went on to delete his Instagram account.
Update: Leipsic has apologized after saying one his friends got his account hacked which led to the screenshots of “private conversations” making their way onto the Internet
The NHL has also released a statement.
