Saskatoon StarPhoenix - - SPORTS -

The lawyer for the fi­ancee of former Ot­tawa Sen­a­tors winger Mike Hoff­man says she doesn’t in­tend on su­ing the wife of the team’s former cap­tain Erik Karls­son over al­le­ga­tions of cy­ber­bul­ly­ing.

Sheila Block says her client Monika Caryk only wants to know the ba­sis of Melinda Karls­son’s al­le­ga­tions that Caryk wished Karls­son and her un­born child dead and said some­one should in­jure Erik Karls­son to end his ca­reer. The al­le­ga­tions come from an ap­pli­ca­tion for a peace bond Karls­son filed against Caryk in May, claim­ing Caryk posted over 1,000 “neg­a­tive and deroga­tory” com­ments about her on­line.

Block said her client de­nies mak­ing the com­ments and won’t take ac­tion against Karls­son be­cause she be­lieves Karls­son has suf­fered enough. Caryk is, how­ever, seek­ing an or­der to have Karls­son share any ev­i­dence she has.
