Hirsch in the News Again

You can add another chapter to the sad saga of Tyler Hirsch.

Hirsch had recently been trying to resurrect his hockey career, and start his professional hockey career. He attended the Minnesota Wild training camp as a free agent, trying to earn a contract.

Last Friday, the Houston Aeros, Minnesota's AHL affiliate announced that Tyler Hirsch had signed a contract with the Aeros, and would be assigned to the ECHL.

Sunday, Hirsch emailed Michael Russo, Wild beat writer for the Minneapolis Star-Tribune to say that he had not signed the contract and that the Wild had been unethical in saying that he had signed.

After news of this broke, the Aero's GM Tom Lynn said the Wild planned to cut all ties to Hirsch.

Hirsch's lowlights while with the University of Minnesota included the well-documented outburst at the Final Five, missing the first game of the 2006-2007 season after showing up late for a team meeting, and finally, being kicked off the team in the middle of last season.
