Second Player From The 2018 WJC Scandal Pleads His Case



A lawyer for Calgary Flames forward Dillon Dube confirms Dube has been officially charged and says he will plead not guilty.


The alleged incident occurred at a London hotel on June 19, 2018, following a Hockey Canada Foundation golf and gala event in which the accuser has been identified as E.M..


Notably, none of the allegations against the players have been proven. London police initially investigated in 2019 but closed the case due to insufficient evidence. In May 2022, a $3.55-million lawsuit settlement was revealed between E.M. and Hockey Canada, leading to public backlash and renewed investigations by the NHL and London police.

Stay tuned for more updates.
