He began shopping the video to various reporters via Twitter, writing that the players - Matt Duchene, Thomas Chabot, Alex Formenton, Dylan DeMelo, Colin White, Chris Tierney and Chris Wideman - were "cheap entitled kids".
Ottawa Senators' Matt Duchene was one of seven players caught in secret footage taken in an Uber auto.
The Uber driver is heard asking what team the players play for near the beginning of the video and Wideman, seated in the passenger seat, replied: "Ottawa". If you can tell we're really pleased with our.' before a player seated in the middle row of the vehicle finishes his sentence: 'with our PK [penalty kill]'.

Tierney, seated behind the driver, looked up the team's stats on his phone and found Ottawa is 29th of 31 National Hockey League teams in terms of penalty killing.
The players released a statement Monday night apologizing for their comments. "We are now treating this as a team matter, and will be making no further comment to the media". "On-ice performance, ticket sales, attendance, discord in the locker room and public support of the organization are all relevant when it comes to discussing the overall health of the team".
