The lengthy investigation into the events that occurred at the 2018 World Junior Championship appears to be nearing an end, and we should have a conclusion in the coming days. TSN Reporter Rick Westhead revealed an idea of what the charges may look like for the involved players.

Westhead Provides Clarity on what Potential Charges May be



Reporter Rick Westhead has been reporting on this incident since it was made public, and he provided an idea of what the accused players may be facing if they are convicted for their alleged crimes.

Several criminal lawyers who specialize in SA cases have told me over the past days they expected former 2018 World Juniors players facing prosecution for allegations in London, Ont., might face charges of SA and forceable confinement. Alex Formenton's attorney Daniel Brown told me today that the former Senators player has not been charged with either of those offences.
He declined to elaborate on what Formenton has been charged with.
If Formenton has been charged with common allegations, he faces a maximum 10 years in prison if he's found guilty. People convicted of SA a maximum of 14 years." - Rick Westhead



This news comes on the same day that Alex Formenton was the first player to turn himself in to the London Ontario Police Department.


Other Players Involved in the Investigation that have been Named



The players in this incident that have been identified to date, and have all taken indefinite leaves of absence from their respective teams. The players that have been summoned to surrender to the London PD are as follows:

Dillon Dube, Alex Formenton, Carter Hart, Cal Foote, Michael McLeod


We will continue to follow the situation as it develops, more details to follow.
