The QMJHL said in a statement Friday that it has been notified of the reopening of the investigation and that it will offer its “full cooperation” to the Quebec police department.

Le Soleil reported in 2015 that a woman had filed a complaint alleging sexual assault involving four Olympiques players in a hotel room in Quebec City in January 2014.

The initial police investigation ended in March 2015 without any charges being laid.

The reopening of the investigation comes as Hockey Canada faces scrutiny for its handling of sexual assault allegations in 2018 and 2003 against players on its world junior men’s team.

This report from The Canadian Press was first published on August 12, 2022.
