On February 2nd, 2014, Donovan and Foucher were involved in an incident that would later lead to them each being charged for one count of sexual assault. The alleged incident took place in a hotel room in Thunder Bay, Ontario. 

Their hockey team was in Thunder Bay for two hockey games against Lakehead University.

The complainant, who was 21-years-old at the time, was a student at Lakehead University and testified that she consented to having sex with one of the defendant's teammates, but she did not consent to having sex with Donovan or Foucher. 

Donovan and Foucher were charged with sexual assault in August 2014.

The hockey team was suspended
in March 2014 and remained suspended until 2016, following the charges. 

After many years of delays, the case finally went to trial in February of this year. Today, Donovan and Foucher were both found not guilty of sexual assault in connection to the complainant.
