This is a video from the weekend and Jake Virtanen looks like he’s having a BLAST all while shading former NHL cancer, Brendan Leipsic. That’s the real story here.
In the video, Virtanen is getting bottle service at Celebrities bar in Vancouver while wearing a custom ‘Worst Crew Ever’ hat flexing on Brendan Leispic’s head in the process.
Note the hat…
People who trust that hockey players will abide by rules and stay in their bubble are flat out wrong.

(Just like that Vanessa Jang private’s her account…we’ll find the video…The rest of the story will draw you a picture)
Remember a couple of months ago when Brendan Leipsic lost his life after someone leaked a series of racist/sexist DM’S? It started with this message calling Jake’s ‘crew the ‘worst crew ever’ along with other messages about his (then) current Cap’s teammates.
Jake didn’t say anything until this video surfaced yesterday on social media and he made sure this hat had plenty of screen time.

Jake Virtanen outing himself as a giant moron on social media not once but twice just proves he is the captain this city deserves

I have no idea who Vanessa Jang is but her bio says she’s a sportswriter so this must feel like the scoop of a lifetime for her because it’s trending all over Canada right now and some of you are losing it, which is funny.
Don’t put that on him. I work every day, so do a lot of people that have direct and indirect contact with people who they don’t normally see. If you’ve gone to the gym, grocery store, out for food, Walmart, anything you’re in the same boat. Don’t you dare put that on him.

That’s because we’re hockey freaks in the middle of a pandemic waiting for the NHL playoffs to start. If not, Vanessa’s tweet disappears with the rest of them into the Twittersphere and Jake Virtanen doesn’t have some explaining to do.
If you’re one of those people just fucking LIVID about jake and his pals drinking their dicks off sans masks at a bar in Vancouver, RELAX. About 30 other NHL players tested positive during the phase 1 testing and if you think he’s the only NHL player who went out to get shitfaced on the weekend, he’s not. Vancouver sent their kids back to school in June and Cheif Medical Officer Bonnie Henry has almost eviscerated the virus from BC to the point where these businesses are allowed to operate and people are allowed to go there as long as the staff takes necessary precautions.
Towels on the grey goose and masks on the bottle service girls means technically, Jake Virtanen didn’t do a goddamned thing wrong other than piss people off who don’t know what’s happening in BC.
Jake’s an idiot for putting himself front and center on social media while partying but that’s pretty much all you can accuse the man of today, so chill out and let the man rage with his friends.
