Hockey Canada announced it is reopening an investigation into an alleged sexual assault by members of the 2018 National Junior Team, the organization said Thursday in an open letter.

“This investigation continues to be led by an independent third party and will require all players to participate,” the letter said. “Those who do not will be banned from all Hockey Canada activities and programs effective immediately. The investigation, once complete, will be referred to an independent adjudicative panel of current and former judges who will determine the appropriate consequences, which may include a lifetime ban from Hockey Canada activity, on and off the ice.”
