Noah Corson, the son of former well-known NHLer Shayne Corson, was found guilty this morning of a very serious charge after a trial back in November. Corson will be sentenced during another hearing on May 3.

Corson and two other hockey players were charged with assaulting a minor under the age of 16 at her home. Corson was playing for the Drummondville Voltigeurs of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

"Former Drummondville Voltigeurs player Noah Corson was found guilty today of s*xually assaulting a teenager who was under the age of 16.

Corson, who is now 25, was 18 at the time of the assault in the fall of 2016. He was not drafted into the NHL. Two other hockey players, one of whom played with Corson for Drummondville, previously pleaded guilty in youth court to their roles in the assault. One of those players testified in Corson's trial, Le Journal de Montreal reported. Corson's sentencing hearing is scheduled for May 3."

"Noah Corson, 25, tried to assure the court that he was convinced that the alleged victim was at least 18 years old, while the prosecutor argued that Corson 'showed recklessness' or 'willful blindness.'" - Toronto Sun

According to a report by CBC, there was joy from some in the courtroom when the verdict was read. Corson left the courtroom with his hands covering his face.

Corson is listed as a former hockey player, although he played in the ECHL as recently as last season. His father Shayne Corson played 1156 regular season games in the NHL with the Montreal Canadiens, Edmonton Oilers, St. Louis Blues, and Toronto Maple Leafs.
