The 2018 World Juniors and Team Canada have been under a lot of controversy for events that happened after Canada won the tournament. Now one of the team's most notable players has signed overseas.

Formenton Heads Back Overseas

Today it was announced that Ottawa Senators forward Alex Formenton was heading back overseas to play in Switzerland.
Alex Formenton has signed a deal to return to Ambrė-Piotta in the Swiss League until Christmas. It can be extended through the rest of the season. #Sens

Formenton is going to be in his second stint with Ambri-Piotta after spending last season there. His contract with the team includes an NHL out clause meaning if the Senators want to bring him back they have the right to do so.
Formenton of course is one of the players from the 2018 WJC team in Canada who are being investigated due to actions taken after winning. Ambri-Piotta made a statement regarding the signing of Formenton and the ongoing investigation.
"The club is aware that there is an ongoing investigation and to date there has been no charge nor conviction against the player. The club reserves the right to review the contractual situation with the player should new elements emerge.

"The player, for his part, has the possibility of returning to the NHL at any time if the second investigation were to resolve like the first with nothing done. Out of respect for the ongoing investigations, the player and club will not release further statements on the situation."

This statement acknowledges the ongoing investigation and Ambri-Piotta's right to take action with Formenton's contract if new information becomes available. For now, the former top Senators prospect will continue to play in Switzerland while awaiting to hear his future based on the results of the investigation.
