Penguins 'racist' locker room prank revealed in Jarkko Ruutu’s book

Jarkko Ruutu was one of the NHL’s greatest pests during his 11-season career. Two of those seasons were with the Pittsburgh Penguins, where Ruutu shared a locker room with forwards Colby Armstrong and Georges Laraque, both of whom are now retired.  And now, in his new Finnish-language book “The Divine Comedy,” Ruutu shares one hell of a story about these two teammates which was excerpted on iltasanomat.fi. From reader Krespo: In this story he tells how, one day after practice, Georges Laraque stormed into the locker room absolutely furious, threatening to trash the place. Players gathered around and Laraque showed a picture pinned at his locker room stall – a drawing of a monkey with a banana. So of course everybody started to freak out a bit, worried this could destroy the team. Laraque demanded to know who did it, and after a while, Colby Armstrong stepped up and admitted he did it. Others wanted to know why would he do such a thing. Armstrong replied: "What do you mean? He is a [N-word], isn't he?" Laraque just snapped and attacked Armstrong, and others tried to break them up, worried somebody might get seriously hurt. But suddenly it ended with Armstrong and Laraque laughing – it was just a prank, albeit a bit over the top. No one had suspected anything, since the guys had acted their parts so fine. But it was a hoax. Apparently it was, seeing as how Colby Armstrong is still alive and breathing and not a pool of goo still dripping from the fists of Georges Laraque. Ruutu’s got plenty of other stories, including saying something so terrible to Sean Avery that it was “a human rights violation.” No word on when his book will be translated for English, but can it be, like, tomorrow?
