Hockey Canada has received the final report from a third-party panel investigating possible sanctions against former World Junior players involved in a 2018 group Sexual Assault. However, the organization is not releasing the results or stating whether sanctions are recommended due to an ongoing appeal process. The case involves a lawsuit filed by a woman who alleged that she was sexually assaulted by eight Canadian Hockey League players, including members of the World Junior team. The case led to sponsors dropping support for Hockey Canada and the federal government freezing its funding. The NHL has also conducted its own investigation.
