After a lengthy investigation, it appears as though we are closing in on official answers from the 2018 Team Canada World Juniors incident.

Major NHL Consequences for all four players



While their legal consequences will be dire assuming they are found guilty, these players are likely to face major backlash from the NHL and their organizations too.

According to Emily Kaplan, they will all likely face lengthy suspensions or most likely, termination when police announce the official charges.


Each of these players has taken a leave of absence from their respective teams, which has been paid.

If/when police announce charges, their statuses could change. Likely contract termination or suspension.


This has been a long time coming for an incident that has been a major black eye for Hockey Canada, and soon we will know all the facts and justice will hopefully be served.
