Dustin Penner is a former NHL player/current NHL free agent who was slated to be part of TSN’s TradeCentre program, covering the NHL trade deadline on Monday.
Dustin Penner has been known to “toe the line” on social media before…

Dustin Penner has been removed from TSN coverage.
Alongside TSN’s Cabral Richards, Penner was slated to have his own segment, on Monday’s Broadcast, re: the trade deadline. The 32-year-old winger was in the league as recent as last year, and after going unsigned in the offseason, Penner is still eligible to be picked up as an unrestricted free agent. Regardless if he can still perform at a NHL-level, something tells me that this isn’t going to happen in the near future.
Sorry to break this to you, Dustin, but rape is never funny — let alone rape jokes on Twitter. It’s the social media equivalent of saying “BOMB!” on an airplane.
Oh it’s totally ok though, guys! He apologized for himself AND his girlfriend …
He’s so sincere that he hasn’t even deleted the rape joke tweets yet! Boy, did he learn his lesson.
Apology accepted, Dustin! Don’t worry, i’m sure the internet will just totally forget about this and not make a big deal of it.
