Monika Caryk, the fiancée of current Florida Panthers forward Mike Hoffman, has filed an application with the Ontario Superior Court of Justice seeking the disclosure of information in a cyberbullying scandal involving Melinda Karlsson, the wife of Ottawa Senators player Erik Karlsson.
Caryk filed the application, called a Norwich Order, on Thursday, according to court documents obtained by ESPN. In an attempt to clear her name, Caryk is looking for Melinda Karlsson to disclose any information she has pertaining to the alleged harassment.
Hoffman, a left winger, and Karlsson, a defenseman, had been teammates on the Senators. Hoffman was traded to the San Jose Sharks -- and then flipped to the Panthers -- last month, about a week after the allegations of cyberbullying surfaced.
Caryk wants to "expose the real perpetrators responsible for harassment and cyberbullying Ms. Karlsson, and demonstrate to Ms. Karlsson and the public that I have been wrongly accused," according to the court application.
Melinda Karlsson filed for a peace bond, an order of protection, against Caryk on May 4, alleging that she harassed the Karlssons online. That harassment included remarks about the death of their child, who was stillborn in March, via comments on Melinda Karlsson's Instagram account under a pseudonym.
