Blackhawks forward Dave Bolland made a bad decision regarding a retweet on Twitter on Friday afternoon. On Saturday, he apologized for it.

Bolland told TSN he was sorry for retweeting a fans post about wanting (NHL commissioner Gary) Bettman dead. The retweet was taken down shortly after.

It was a mistake, I never meant to retweet that out," Bolland told TSN on Saturday. "I like to retweet for a lot of my fans and I just retweeted the wrong thing. I feel bad about it.

Its been a week of misspeaking, mis-tweeting and mis-retweeting for hockey players regarding NHL brass. Players comments on Bettman have been anywhere from not-so-smart to completely uncalled for.
