In junior he was a lb or 2 shy of 290 lbs.
He played for the Hawks at weights reaching 280 lbs and never was less than 258....briefly.
Most of the time on the Hawks he was 265- 278 lbs.

Regardless....he made a mistake and will pay the consequences.
He is a heck of a nice person and he will put this behind him.

As a lifelong Hawk fan I wish he was still with Chicago.
Definitely have nothing against him personally and felt bad that this happened. I knew he was up in the 260's with the Hawks, never knew he was up at 278 with the big club at any time. You obviously know better than I do so I'll take your word for it. Regardless, the entire story was surprise news. Hopefully all is well for him going forward as I have no ill will towards him and wish he was still here as well.
