Former World Junior players to be tried together on sexual assault charges

By News Feb 28, 2024 | 3:42 PM

The five former members of Canada’s world junior hockey team charged with sexual assault will have their case heard by a jury.

The Globe and Mail is reporting the players will be tried together as a group in relation to a 2018 sexual assault of a woman in London, Ontario.

In a statement to the publication, lawyers representing the players say they’re confident that jurors will decide the case fairly and impartially.

The report says it will still be months before a date is decided.

The five players are NHLers Carter Hart, Dillon Dube, Cal Foote, Michael McLeod and former Ottawa Senator Alex Formenton.
