Our weekly selection of hockey moves that leave us scratching our heads. Started back in 2007, HotW was an institution around these parts or years. As research time became more scarce, we let it lapse, but by the grace of a Gordie Hull Hat Trick, it's back!

We don't recommend that any of these feats be attempted at home, nor do we suggest that you you these fine folks as role models for your children.

For the Week of 12/1/08
David Frost

David Frost pulled an O.J., Canadian style last week. The former coach and player agent was acquitted in a Canadian court on four counts of sexual exploitation. Frost skirted charges that he exploited the trust of the teenage boys that he was tasked with mentoring.

From the Toronto Star:

"In coming to the testimonial rescue of a man they once feared and revered, the one-time junior stars methodically contradicted the evidence of friends, lovers, teammates and even their own previously sworn statements to police.

The four sexual exploitation charges related to alleged incidents dating back to the late 1990s, when Frost coached - actually, usurped the coaching job from the man who formally held that title - a junior hockey team in Deseronto, a dot of a town about 215 kilometres east of Toronto.

Teenage girls, some at least, were clearly giddy over the young stud players arriving in their dull hamlet and eagerly pursued them as boyfriends.

Two of these girls, now women in their late 20s, took the stand here last month to testify they'd been coerced into having threesomes with their boyfriends and Frost.

Under oath, the women said they agreed - reluctantly - to two-on-one sex, with Frost as a participant, at the urging of those boyfriends. Both maintained Frost controlled their relationships with the players, even to the extent of determining when sex would be permitted.

One of them, Jennifer, who had a serious six-year relationship with a player - at least, she thought it was serious and might lead to marriage - testified that submitting to threesomes with Frost over that entire period was a requirement for sustaining the affair, though her aversion to Frost in their bed led to endless arguments.

But that player heatedly disputed any sex with Frost had taken place. "

One of the players, whose testimony led to the original charges, is former St Louis Blues player Mike Danton, who is serving a 7-year prison term for conspiracy to kill Frost. Danton was arrested in San Jose after the Blues were eliminated by the Sharks in the 2003 Western Conference Quarter Finals

He was so distraught by the abuse allegedly dished out by frost that he forfeited his NHL career in order to rid himself of the demon that was Frost.

After the acquittal was announced and Ontario Court Justice Geoffrey Griffin existed the courtroom, a female spectator, the sister of one of the women who had testified for the prosecution, yelled, "Scumball!" at Frost. "That's for my sister.

Frost turned to the woman and said," Go f--- yourself."
