Gee Gee hockey player signs with Australian team

A fourth year University of Ottawa hockey player is taking his playing skills elsewhere.

Goaltender Harrison May has signed a contract to play hockey with Proski North Stars in Newcastle, Australia.

May did not play when the team travelled to Thunder Bay over the February 1st weekend that's when a sexual assault is alleged to have taken place.

While Thunder Bay Police are investigating, no charges have been laid. Thunder Bay Police spokesperson Chris Adams tells CFRA they do not expect to release any new information about their case for several weeks.

One of May's Gee Gees teammates penned an open letter to university president Allan Rock, saying his good name has been smeared by the suspension.

Pat Burns says he has been found innocent by police, and yet the door has been slammed on him.

In a statement released Tuesday afternoon, university spokesperson Caroline Milliard says it will complete its internal investigation before revisiting the decision to suspend the entire team.
