College Hockey:
Minnesota’s Haula cited for misdemeanor disorderly conduct

According to a report in the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, an “extremely intoxicated” Erik Haula stood on a street in Stillwater, Minn., after bar closing time on July 21 and urinated for others to witness.

Haula, who will be a junior this fall at Minnesota, was cited for misdemeanor disorderly conduct and then turned over to a friend, whom police described as “somewhat sober.”

A Stillwater police officer noted in his report that “it was clear that [Haula] was extremely intoxicated,” he “was very cooperative. No problems.”

Garry Bowman, a spokesman for the Minnesota athletic department, said Friday in a statement to the paper that “Coach [Don] Lucia is aware of the incident. He has spoken to Erik and will handle it as an internal team matter.”

Haula, a native of Finland, led the Gophers last season with 49 points (20 goals, 29 assists).

  • Bar Down

    Ok Goof fans….now you can’t bring up the Oshie charge….we’re all square.

    • Fan Man

      That is absolutely Halarious that he did that and bar down, you are correct on that assessment.. No more goofball trash talking about pissin in public ;)

  • Geneva6

    I love it–ends any trash talking on that subject.

    • B.D.

      THe problem is the guy who does most of the trash talking is Homeboy and he is not motivated by pro gopher postions, but rather Anti-Sioux position. He can be expected to continue his usual anti-sioux dribble even if the the enitre WCHA/NCHC were incarcerated.

    As long as they didn’t find any houses where all the owners belongings had been moved out into the middle of the street in Stillwater I think Haula will still make the team this fall. Suspend him for the game against Lethbridge if there has to be discipline.

    • Fan Man

      It sounds like Haula had a hard enough time picking up his own wiener! How in the heck could he have picked up a lawnmower like Frattin did and throw it anywhere? He couldn’t even hold Frattin’s jockstrap haha

  • sioux rule

    He would of gotten indecent exposure but they didn’t see his junk as he was squating.

    • HockeyFox

      Speaking from experience?

      • sioux rule

        I sure do. When I take a dump. Carry on.

    Looks like someone is going to be leaving school early. At least he couldn’t pass out in a snow bank and almost lose his toes.

    • Guess one more time

      He walked across a golf course with one sandal. Get it right LOL

  • sioux rule

    Gee I wonder if he will be a captain this year. Bwahahahahaha.

    • mahogma

      Gee,I wonder what the Susan’s mascot and nickname will be this year?

      • sioux rule

        North Dakota. Carry on.

      • B.D.

        Homeboy:
        Wanna lay money that at the end of the National Anthem for the first homegame the word SIOUX will reverberate throughout the Ralph?
        If the fans know them as the Sioux, what is the difference if the name is on the program?

        • Fan Man

          That will certainly never change! I for one actually like the new old school jerseys, just not sure if I’m ready to buy one yet. I think I’ll continue wearing the regular white or green Sioux jersey on Fridays and then the strait up pimpin since been pimpin black jersey on Saturday’s… Seems to work for me during the season. Thinking about changing up the routine this year in the Regionals though LOL! Maybe help turn things around…

  • Fan Man

    Something to think about. These high profile college athletes we all talk about are under a microscope. Whether right or wrong, it is hard for these guys. Think about it, they are in a college setting where they have access to anything they want (girls,booze etc..). Sometimes is goes to their heads and they start ~doing~ ANYTHING they want. This is when reality sets in and hopefully the coaching staff steps up. I’m surprised to hear this happening with Haulahoop right after his appearance at the Wild prospect camp. One would think that would be a motivator for him… Not saying I still don’t find this hilarious but comon’ man, find a tree or something!

  • surhater

    why am i not surprised that the only idiots here taking shots are SUE fans! losers!!!!!!!!!!

    • Guest

      Really! Looks like the only loser’s today is you and your goofer brother what’s his name that squats to pee

      • suehater

        at least the star trib. was smart enough not to allow all of you rubes to post comments there. you losers really need a life!

        • sioux rule

          Yet suehater comments on here. Pot kettle black me boy.

          • Fan Man

            No comment needed. He said enough

  • sioux rule

    Sioux fans losers eh? Hell rodent fans are still talking about the Oshie incident from 5 years ago. I will get my jabs in early then this thing will be put to rest once the season starts as far as I’m concerned. If a Sioux player had done this the comments would be 3 times as many as they are now from rodent fans. Easily.

  • suehater

    oh, don’t worry, it is just a matter of time before another one of your upstanding hockey players from the land of academia makes news AGAIN.

  • SoaringEagle

    Love it. Battle of the drunken former WCHA teams and fans. Goofs vs. Sues, and between you the only thing you beat BC on is DWI and indecent arrest convestions. bwahahahahaha

    • sioux rule

      And the Sioux and eagles have a 11-11-1 record against each other. Nice try though. bwahahahaha

      • mahogma

        Gophers lead BC all time,14-12-2 and the Susans 145-130-14.

        • sioux rule

          And the Sioux lead both with more National Championships. Carry on.

          • chrisgal

            That line isn’t going to work much longer…..

          • sioux rule

            Maybe but today it does. Carry on.

        • Soaring Eagle

          You and Sioux Rule are peas in a pod like Oshie and Haula. Nice try running out all time records including Sioux wins from before ND was a state. Three years ago you all wanted Lucia out and the guy was ill, and in North Dakota they’re big on hydrofracking and not winning the national tourney anymore

          • sioux rule

            Intersting. The Fighting Sioux won their first title in 1959. Damn I could of swore we were a state by then. My bad. And as far as oil goes in our state I for one love it since my family owns mineral rights to 2 wells out by Watford City. Life is good.

          • B.D.

            And?

    • Joseph Crowley

      Yes, no BC players ever caused any problems at Molly’s in Cleveland Circle.

      On the whole, hockey players and athletes act better and are more mature than the general college population. The loud, lewd and rude ones do tend to stand out, since they are higher profile than the general population.

      Let’s not paint programs with the actions of a handful of players.

      • chrisgal

        Try Mary Ann’s, not Molly’s……

        • Joseph Crowley

          It has been too long since I roamed Allston-Brighton. I miss Fathers Too.
