Moments ago, Robyn Doolittle of Global News revealed that Alex Formenton has officially turned himself into the London Police. Formenton is the first player of the five requested to turn themselves in to face allegations for the incident that took place involving the 2018 World Juniors Team. Formenton is now officially facing charges.


Four days ago, TSN's Rick Westhead broke the news that 5 players must come forward to surrender to London Police and face the charges from the incident in 2018.




The London Police have not officially announced who the other five players that just surrender are, but earlier this week, Carter Hart, Michael McLeod, Dillon Dube, and Cal Foote all took indefinite personal leaves from their respective NHL teams. All of those players were members of the 2018 Canadian Team which are facing the allegations. Formenton was playing overseas in Switzerland when he left the team to face these allegations.

Now officially with the London Police, Formenton is now facing charges, and according to a statement from his lawyer, he intends to defend himself in court.

Alex will vigorously defend his innocence and asks that people not rush to judgment without hearing all of the evidence.

In the coming days, expect more members of the team that to come forward and officially surrender to London Police.
