Edmonton Oilers goalie Nikolai Khabibulin will step outside Arizona’s Tent City prison Sunday as a free man after serving 15 days for impaired driving.
Khabibulin will spend the remaining 15 days of his 30-day sentence under house arrest in Paradise Valley, Ariz.
He was also ordered to pay a $1,500 fine and participate in an alcohol recovery program.
While staying at Tent City, he was an ideal inmate, said Sgt. Jesse Spurgin with the Maricopa County jail.
“No incidents or problems whatsoever,” Spurgin said, “He behaved himself perfectly.”
On Feb 8th, 2010, Khabibulin was pulled over in his Ferrari for going 70 mph in a 45 mph zone.
Arizona police administered a sobriety test which the Oiler failed.
