, however employers take a different tack these days, especially when your employer is a sports team. Hockey alone has had too many issues with players having issues with the booze (and drugs) - John Kordic

As bolded above, my view isn't that he's necessarily an alcoholic, however his team may well take a differing view. If that view is not that he is an alcoholic, then it may well be that his behaviour is a bud in need of nipping.
As I say, teams have had too many bad experiences in the past when letting things like this go unchecked for this incident not to raise a red flag to them.
