Amidst escalating developments, the Globe and Mail has revealed a concerning situation involving five former players from the 2018 world junior hockey team. The players have been directed to surrender to London, Ont., police to face charges of misconduct, with a specified timeframe for their appearance at the police headquarters.

Adding to the gravity of the situation, London authorities announced a forthcoming press conference on February 5, where further details on the investigation will be disclosed.

"We understand that there is significant public interest in relation to a sexual assault investigation dating back to 2018. We anticipate that the LPS will hold a press conference on Monday, February 5, 2024, to share further details."




This unsettling revelation follows the granting of indefinite leaves of absence to five players, all part of the gold-winning Team Canada in 2018. The unfolding scenario began with the Calgary Flames' Dillion Dube stepping away for mental health reasons, followed by Philadelphia Flyers goalie Carter Hart, another member of the 2018 WJC Team Canada, being granted an indefinite leave by the Flyers.
