Players Suspended in Connection with the ECJ 2018 Scandal: Hockey Canada's Major Last-Minute Announcement

In the final seconds, Hockey Canada made a major announcement regarding the 2018 Team Canada Junior scandal.

Firstly, they announced that "all players from the 2018 national junior team remain suspended from Hockey Canada and are currently ineligible as players, coaches, officials, or volunteers within programs sanctioned by the organization."

The statement announces that the independent arbitration tribunal presents its report, and we were finally going to have answers and names, but that will have to wait.

Why?


Because an appeal notice has been filed.

We must therefore wait for the conclusion of the appeal process before the long-awaited final and public unveiling of the investigation report.

In summary, the decision has been made, but with the appeal, Hockey Canada states that the details cannot be shared with the public at the moment.

New: Hockey Canada says a three-member panel has reached a decision on sanctions regarding allegations involving members of the 2018 World Juniors team.
The panel was provided with Henein Hutchison Robitaille LLP's investigative findings.
The panel's decision is now being appealed. (Hockey Canada declined to say who is hearing the appeal.)
Hockey Canada says it consulted with London, Ont., police to ensure announcing the development would not affect their criminal investigation. -Rick Westhead
