MOSCOW, 27 Jul – Several players on Canada’s 2018 Under-21 team who are accused of rape could face life bans, according to The Athletic.
TSN previously reported that a woman, now 24, filed a lawsuit in the Ontario Supreme Court in April alleging she was repeatedly sexually assaulted in a hotel room in June 2018. The defendants in the case were Hockey Canada, the Canadian Hockey League (CHL), and eight unnamed CHL players, including members of the 2018 Canadian Youth Team. The accusations against the players were not proven in court then, the lawsuit was eventually withdrawn.
According to the portal, players who refuse to take part in interrogations in the reopened investigation will receive a lifetime ban. They will not be able to take part in any tournaments under the auspices of Hockey Canada.
Earlier, Hockey Canada issued an open letter in which, among other things, they apologized for the lack of response to the allegations. “We know we haven’t done enough to correct the actions of some members of the 2018 National Youth Team or end the culture of toxic behavior in our game. For that, we apologize unconditionally,” the letter said.
The reopened investigation is being conducted by an independent third party and will require the participation of all defendants. It was reported that those who refused to cooperate would be immediately suspended from all tournaments under the auspices of Hockey Canada.
