Word leaked out on Monday that Thomas Vanek had been in court in connection to an ongoing gambling investigation. Although details are murky, reports are starting to surface that Thomas Vanek was betting on the playoff performance of Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury.
“All I said was ‘I bet he chokes again this year’ before the playoffs, and now all of a sudden the FBI is all over me. I tried explaining to them that this was more of a case of common sense, and that no betting actually took place, but they wouldn’t listen. I bet they always make mistakes-” Vanek tried explaining before more charges were laid against him for betting on Federal agents.
