“Last month, Hockey Canada, Hockey Manitoba, and Hockey Winnipeg learned of an alleged sexually exploitative relationship between a coach and a player between 2019 and 2021 through a video circulating online. The Winnipeg Police Service was notified, and we sent this information to Hockey Canada’s Independent Third Party (ITP).
We take allegations of this nature extremely seriously and the individual is ineligible to participate in Hockey Canada-sanctioned programs, including as a coach, guest coach or volunteer while the ITP complaint process is ongoing.
As the police and ITP investigations are ongoing, we are not able to comment further at this time.”
