A golf resort developer is being sued by nearly two dozen NHL players. They say he duped them out of $25 million, blowing the money on parties that were attended by porn stars, hookers and former Yankees players Roger Clemens and Reggie Jackson.

The New York Post reports that 19 former and current NHL players, including Sergei Gonchar of the Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins, filed suit on Thursday against Ken Jowdy. They allege that they invested the money with the Las Vegas-based golf-course mogul to develop two luxury resorts in Mexico - a project they say is seven years behind schedule.

Instead, according to the players, Jowdy squandered the money on "lavish parties" to impress the likes of Clemens, Jackson and Pete Rose, who Jowdy hoped would eventually buy real estate in the planned resorts.
