BC JUNIOR B LEAGUE SUSPENDS TWO PLAYERS AFTER HAZING INCIDENT

SEP 19, 2022  (18H12)      TJ TUCKER
Two players with a team in the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League have been suspended following an investigation into a hazing incident. The release from the Creston Valley Thunder Cats and the KIJHL said it is the team's captain who has been suspended for 12 games, while an assistant captain has been suspended for six games.

The KIJHL was notified of the incident by Thunder Cats' staff on Tuesday, September 13th and immediately suspended team activities, including the cancellation of the team's exhibition game the following evening, in order to allow time to gather further information. League staff travelled to Creston on September 15th to conduct interviews with Thunder Cats' players and coaches. Throughout this process, the KIJHL has consulted with its Safe Sport partner, ITP Sport, and with BC Hockey.

As a result of the KIJHL's investigation, the following disciplinary measures have been taken:

-The Creston Valley Thunder Cats organization has received a fine and placed on probation for a period of two years. During this time, the Thunder Cats must take proactive steps to ensure a positive team culture free from abuse, bullying and harassment. Any occurrence of a similar incident will result in further sanctions.

-Members of the Creston Valley Thunder Cats will be required to complete training designed to identify and eliminate instances of abuse, bullying and harassment.
Thunder Cats team captain

-Clayton Brown has been suspended for 12 games, effective Sept. 16, for violations of the league's Individual Conduct Policy.
Thunder Cats alternate captain Campbell McLean has been suspended for 6 games, effective Sept. 16, for violations of the league's Individual Conduct Policy.

The release does not say exactly what occurred that led to the suspensions. That said, hazing in hockey is nothing new and has a tendency to go way over the line at times. The KIJHL has made it clear it will not comment further on the matter.
