Arizona Coyotes move to cut Adam Ruzicka after social media video appears to show him flashing cocaine

Feb 24, 2024

The Arizona Coyotes have placed forward Adam Ruzicka on unconditional waivers to terminate his contract after a questionable social media post.

Ruzicka posted a video on his Instagram story that showed his face before turning to a credit card and a white powder that appeared to be cocaine, the Associated Press reported Friday. While the post has been deleted, screen recordings of the video continue to circulate.

With Ruzicka under scrutiny, the Coyotes announced Friday that the 24-year-old is going on waivers for termination purposes. The team offered no further comment.

He's in the last season of a two-year deal worth $1.525 million. He had only been in Arizona for about a month, arriving to the team on Jan. 25 after being claimed off waivers from the Calgary Flames.
