The police believe there is a good reason to think that five members of the 2018 Canada World Juniors sexually assaulted an unnamed woman in a local hotel room. 

However, nobody filed a case then, so the investigation this time might take deep research.

Moving on, on January 24, 2024, The Globe and Mail, citing sources whose names are under the curtain, stated that London police had instructed five team members to surrender.

The alleged players are Carter Hart, Dillon Dubé, Alex Formenton, Cal Foote, and Michael McLeod. They are currently absent from the team, showing different reasons for their leave.

With the ongoing investigation, their future in the hockey field may collapse forever.
