In August a report surfaced that 5 NHL players were on the verge of facing a lengthy suspension for their involvement in the Hockey Canada scandal. The report, which was first brought forward by Andy Strickland, was the first anyone had heard about this possible punishment from the investigation. However, since that report no additional information has surfaced.

Over the last 24-hours multiple NHL players connected to the investigation have started to make their social media accounts private. While not an admission of any sort of guilt, the court of public opinion has already deemed them guilty.

Unlike the general public, Katie Strang from The Athletic reached out to London Police for an update on the investigation. As rumors swirl that information could leak as early as today, that appears to not be the case.

According to London Police spokesperson reached this morning, the investigation into 2018 WJC sexual assault allegations remains «active and ongoing»




While nothing is certain London Police stating the investigation is still open makes it unlikely that any additional information will be released today. As one Twitter user pointed out its better to get this right then it is to rush anything.


Update: The NHL has replied to a request for an update.
