Wife of Sens Captain files for peace bond against girlfriend of teammate

Trouble on the Ottawa Senators bench.

We're just getting word of a May 4th court filing by the wife of Sens captain Erik Karlsson.

Melinda Karlsson has applied for a peace bond or protection order from Monika Caryk, the longtime girlfriend of Sens forward Mike Hoffman.

Karlsson alleges Caryk has posted hundreds of nasty online messages about her and her husband.

Caryk denies the allegations.

The Ottawa Senators say they are investigating the matter in co operation with the NHL.
