The NHL is investigating a player’s criminal cybersex charges after a player pleaded guilty to one count of making a child under the age of 18 available for sexual purposes.
The players name has not been released, but the criminal complaint alleges the players computer network, which was located in his home, had been used to download child pornography, including pictures of children under the ages of 13.
The alleged offenses occurred between January 1, 2016 and April 3, 2016, when the players allegedly engaged in cybersex activity with a child.
The NHL said in a statement: “We are aware of the allegations and are taking the appropriate actions.
We take these allegations very seriously and we are conducting an internal review.
We are cooperating fully with the NHL.
We encourage anyone with any information to contact us.”
The league said in its statement that the league has been “working closely” with the U.S. Department of Justice to gather information on the players alleged conduct.
