A Detroit Red Wings spokesman said Wednesday that no lifetime bans were issued as a result of anyone tossing an octopus on the ice during the first hockey game at Little Caesars Arena on Oct. 5.
Multiple news outlets have reported that the Wings gave a lifetime ban to a Windsor man for tossing the first octopus at Little Caesars Arena after he was charged with a misdemeanor.
"The two supervisors of security told me I'm done," Nick Horvath told CBCNews.com of being escorted out of the arena. "I think it's very stiff. If they want to fine me, I understand. If they wanted to ban me for a year ... I can deal with that, but to get banned forever? That can't happen."
According to the Wings, it didn’t.
Kyle Kujawa, a team spokesman, said the a fan "was not banned for throwing an octopus. He was ticketed and then released. This is the same policy we had at Joe Louis Arena. It’s the NHL’s rule that nothing be thrown onto the playing surface, and anyone caught doing so may be issued a ticket by the Detroit Police Department."
It is against the law in Detroit and in other NHL cities for fans to throw anything on the ice during games. Fans risk being ejected from the game and fined up to $500 under the city ordinance.
