The Ontario Hockey League announced on Monday afternoon that the league has officially cleared Sault St. Marie Greyhounds goaltender Tucker Tynan of any wrongdoing following an investigation into claims that Tynan would gamble on OHL games, including those that would feature his team.
According to the official release on the matter, the OHL found no evidence that Tynan placed bets on any league games in the past, and determined that he displayed no behavior that would undermine the competitive integrity of any games.
The decision comes after a Twitter user accused Tynan of running a gambling operation that centered around OHL games back in December, claiming that the netminder had threatened him over unpaid bets.
Tynan denied the accusations immediately and submitted to the OHL's investigation.
Now, he's been cleared.
Tynan has been in the news for varying reasons over the past few years, with the now-19-year-old suffering a horrific and life-threatening laceration to his thigh during a game versus the London Knights on Dec. 12, 2019, taking him out of hockey for two years before Tynan ultimately made his return to the OHL in October of 2021.
Hopefully, after being exonerated, Tynan can resume his career with few distractions moving forward.
