TORONTO – Lawyers for Carter Hart say the Philadelphia Flyers goaltender has been charged with sexual assault in connection to allegations involving Canada’s 2018 world junior hockey team.

The statement from Hart’s lawyers comes shortly after lawyers for two of Hart’s 2018 teammates, Michael McLeod and Dillon Dubé, confirmed their clients have been charged in relation to the same case.

More coming.
