Court documents show five players from Canada’s 2018 world junior team have been charged with sexual assault.
Carter Hart of the Philadelphia Flyers, Michael McLeod and Cal Foote of the New Jersey Devils, Dillon Dube of the Calgary Flames and former NHL player Alex Formenton are facing charges in connection to an incident alleged to have happened on June 19, 2018, in London, Ontario. The document obtained by The Associated Press on Thursday was entered into the record on Wednesday.
McLeod is facing an additional charge of being a party to the offense of sexual assault. Lawyers for all five players last week confirmed their clients were charged with sexual assault and denied wrongdoing.
Hart surrendered to police on Friday, Formenton and Foote on Sunday, Dube on Monday and McLeod on Tuesday. London Police scheduled a news conference for Monday to address the investigation.
