In an update on the 2018 Team Canada World Junior Championship scandal involving NHL players like Cal Foote, Michael McLeod, Carter Hart, and former NHLer Alex Formenton, we may not know their fates for a while.

Legal Limbo: Extended Trial Timeline Raises Career Concerns:



According to TSN lead reporter Rick Westhead, due to a backlog in Ontario's court system, the trial for these five players won't happen until at least 2026. Yeah, talk about a lengthy delay.

Because of the backlog in Ontario's court system, it's unlikely that this case will actually get to trial before 2026.

It's a waiting game with potentially enormous implications for the 2027-28 NHL season. Keep your eyes peeled for more updates as this story unfolds!
