The scandal involving Team Canada Junior has been a major topic in recent months, and there seems to be a significant development.

Five players from the 2018 edition have been summoned by the London, Ontario police to face serious criminal charges.

"Breaking: Five members of the 2018 world junior hockey team have been told to surrender to London, Ont., police to face charges of sexual assault, The Globe and Mail reports, citing unnamed sources.
The Globe reports the players, who have not been charged yet, have been given a set period of time to present themselves at London police headquarters."

It's a complex situation as some former players may not currently be in Canada. No names have been disclosed, but it's speculated that Dillon Dube and Carter Hart may be among them, having left their respective organizations for an indefinite period.

"For those hitting the paywall, no, the players are not named. According to The Globe and Mail, the London police are requesting the players to appear for the laying of charges within an unspecified timeframe."
