Ottawa Senators defenceman Nikita Zaitsev has allegedly taken his children from his ex-wife because he did not want to pay child support.

In a video uploaded to his ex-wife’s Instagram, it appears that Zaitsev is carrying one of his children and fleeing from the camera. His ex-wife did go to the police, according to reports.

On Nov. 22, Zaitsev was absent from the team and cited personal reasons for his departure to Russia.
