Ben Johnson faces two sexual assault charges!

http://bleacherreport.com/tb/d9ZyK?u...m_campaign=nhl

If the above link doesn't work, please copy and paste it to your browser. I'm new on here and still have a lot to learn. Sorry.

So is Ben Johnson the new Mike Danton? He will never play for the Devils, if he ever plays again. What a stupid idiot! I hope the women recover from this, as best as can be expected.

Thank God it was only Ben Johnson and not a top prospect.

This whole mess is just horrible and sad!!!

I'm not sure if that will mean he never plays for the Devils, but it surely doesn't help his hockey career at all.

It's too late to change anything. If he can play hockey I don't care.

I agree. And too often these stories into "oh what a poor young man, shame on that girl for seducing him by being a girl."

Was it ever disclosed what Merrill did?

Some NCAA rules are absurd, the kid could be trash or he could have violated a rule that doesn't even exist at most universities.

Whoa, a rational thought on such a subject? Who know this was possible?

There's a reason people are innocent until proven guilty. None of us here know what happened that night.

and from me, no less!!

seriously though, the practice of claiming ____ against a recent draft pick or even an established athlete is becoming a bit too common. not saying this is the case here, but lets hear the facts/evidence first.

Im not saying JOhnson is innocent or anything like that, but it does happen that a girl and guy go into the bathroom and.... they will usually get caught add in a 16 year old girl in a nightclub probably drunk she will say anything to save her own ass.
The second girl only say's something 3 weeks after this happens, Why wait?
There was also a tweet from a Spitfire Player saying that one of the girls is a sibling to one of the spitfire players

Unfortunately, a lot of guys out there do this. It's disgusting.

Unfrotunately, a lot of girls lie about this stuff. It's disgusting.

We should probably wait to hear what actually happened before picking sides.

Nobody is sure what happened to cause his long suspension at Michigan, but back in Jan. 2010 he got suspended from his high school and the USA U18 team.

"As Merrill tells it, some girls at the school went to the principal with allegations of what they described as “harassment” from a group of students. He called it “hazing” and “messing around with them.” After an investigation, Merrill and the other accused students were suspended."

Exactly.

We can go on about young girls being all but forced to "entertain" young athletes, just to be accepted into "crew". Or be treated as outcast by their own schoolmates.
And we can go on about youngsters that think they are entitled to anything they desire.
Or about girls just plain making stuff up to save their own a$$ (be it drinking while underage, be it to cover sex activities from parents, etc.)

Anything can be truth in todays world. Unfortunatelly.
Hopefully, girls are OK. It'll be less from two evils.

Why did they have a gathering at a nightclub for a junior hockey team (Under 21 years old) in the first place? Or is 18 the legal drinking age in Canada? I forget.

18 in Canada.

When Boston won the Cup in Vancouver, they asked Seguin what he's gonna do to celebrate since he was only 19. His response "I'm in Canada baby"
