08:54 AM ET 10.17 | The convicted drug felon who persuaded 20 former and current National Hockey League players to invest millions of dollars in a prepaid credit card company used the money as his "personal ATM," and embarked on a scheme to strip the business of its assets and defraud investors, according to a lawsuit filed earlier this month in Arizona. Ottawa Senators star Sergei Gonchar, Jere Lehtinen of the Dallas Stars, ex-Islander Michael Peca, ex-Ranger Mattias Norstrom and ex-Isle and Ranger Bryan Berard, among other players, accuse Tommy Constantine of using Eufora to pay for more than $340,000 in personal bills between Sept. 1, 2009, and March 3, 2010.

That's a lot of New era caps and Oakey sunglasses. But it could have been worse...at least he received 100% Free Shipping.

NOPE! Canicken!

These guys were idiots to do this. It just goes to show that just cause you make a lot of money, doesn't mean your smart. Too bad Lehtinen couldn't win the best "financial" defensive forward!

Maybe they can recoup their money hawking Ed Hardy & Air Jordans

They should have watched what happened to Federov
