“The last few months have been extremely difficult for my loved ones and for me personally,” the statement said. “As you can imagine, it was hurtful and frustrating to see a private matter misrepresented in the media. The same applies to the fact that he was unable to put the matter right due to the ongoing legal investigation. Now that this matter has been concluded, I can say straight away that the allegations against me were false.”

The NHL suspended Barroway indefinitely on March 23 after police said a verbal altercation between him and his wife turned physical. Online court records showed Barroway was arrested on suspicion of second-degree assault, a felony, and third-degree assault, a misdemeanor.

Barroway spent a night in jail after police arrested him at an Aspen hotel, the police report said. He was ordered by a court to have no contact with his wife except with their children and was forbidden from drinking alcohol.
