Two Victoriaville Tigres players will be formally charged on Tuesday with sexual assault on a minor and having filmed the victim.
Both players will appear in court today, according to RDS.
Nicolas Daigle and Massimo Siciliano, both 19, were accused back in June of sexually assaulting and filming a young woman at a party. The teenage woman reported the complaint the following day. According to TVA, Daigle will also face additional charges after sharing images of the encounter.
Both players have played for the Tigres this season.
"The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League was made aware of criminal charges against two players from the Victoriaville Tigres stemming from potential actions that occurred in June 2021," a league statement said. "These accusations are taken very seriously, and the Commissioner’s office will take the time to go through the case file brought before the Court. A decision will be communicated within 48 hours regarding the status of these two players."
