New details about alleged Hockey Canada group sexual assault: Police investigators in London, Ont., say they have reasonable grounds to believe that five members of the 2018 world junior hockey team sexually assaulted a woman in a hotel room after a Hockey Canada fundraising gala, a recent filing to the Ontario Court of Justice indicates.

Ah, crap, I had forgotten all about this story. I only say "ah, crap" as a Devils fan, because all rumblings indicate that Mikey MacLeod is at or near the center of it.

I do not say "ah crap" for any other reason, nor do I want this story to go away before the young woman gets the justice and closure she deserves, so that she can begin healing. And if a player who happens to play for my favorite team had anything to do with inflicting that kind of pain on a young woman, then fuck him with the rest of them.

I live in London, have stayed up to date on this story, of course it's at the forefront here (as it is across the country).

I am struggling to find words to express the level of my disgust on the entire matter.

Ottawa did not re-sign RFA Alex Formenton. Rumor has it that his name may be on the police list?
