Sheldon Kennedy, a former NHL player, is calling for Hockey Canada to release its report about allegations that eight Canadian Hockey League players sexually assaulted a women in 2018. 

After a Hockey Canada gala event in June of that year, a woman alleged that eight players, including members of Canada’s 2017–18 World Junior team, sexually assaulted her. The woman filed a lawsuit against Hockey Canada, the CHL and the eight players, who were not named in the documents. 

TSN reported last week that a settlement was reached, but last Thursday, the NHL announced it would investigate the facts around the lawsuit. According to The Athletic, the league called the alleged behavior “both abhorrent and reprehensible.”
