Ottawa Senators players caught on camera mocking coaches, team during Uber ride

A video showing members of the Ottawa Senators hockey team criticizing one of their coaches has prompted an apology from several players.

The five-minute recording appears to have been captured in Phoenix last week and featured a number of prominent Sens players - including Matt Duchene, Chris Wideman, Thomas Chabot and Chris Tierney - poking fun at the team's current defensive and special-teams woes.

"Nothing is more important to us during this rebuild than making sure our players and coaches are fully committed to our plan, our values and our system of play", said head coach Guy Boucher. He later added he hasn't paid attention during Raymond's meeting in "three weeks".

"We were carried away and that's definitely all I can say about it". He shares his passion for the game every single day and he's always there for us, but I think that's where we're going to leave it.

And as we learn more about this story, the Ottawa Senators have already begun to take action.

"We want to apologize publicly to Marty Raymond, our teammates and coaches for out comments in Phoenix, Arizona on October 29".

The viral video, which was reportedly recorded by an Uber driver with a dash-cam, has raised questions about expectations of privacy for Uber passengers. The spokesperson said Uber helped "get this video removed" but did not say what sort of discipline the driver might face.

Lawyers representing the team reportedly sent a letter to the Citizen, stating that the video was recorded and posted on the newspaper's website without the players' consent. "We dealt with this long before this video was released".

The players go on to slam Raymond, who coaches the team's penalty-killing unit.

The Senators are now 29th in the league in penalty killing at 68.8 per cent.

Uber Canada's General Manager Rob Khazzam said filming riders without their consent was a violation of their terms of service. Owner Eugene Melnyk threatening to move the team, a freakish alleged cyberbullying incident involving the wife of former star captain Erik Karlsson and harassment allegations against former assistant general manager Randy Lee are just the tip of the iceberg.

It wasn't just the coaches or the team that the players took shots at.

Senators coach Guy Boucher said the team is trying to move forward and concentrate on Tuesday night's home game against New Jersey.

While it's certainly an embarrassing moment for the Senators and the Ottawa organization, Maurice said people should realize that such talk among players is not uncommon.
