Police in Thunder Bay have charged two University of Ottawa hockey players in connection with a sexual assault that took place when the team was in the city for a game in February.

Police say the assault involved a 21-year-old female victim and allegedly took place in a hotel early on February 2.

They say they were made aware of the incident by a third party, which triggered an ``extensive investigation'' that involved police in Thunder Bay and officers in Ottawa.

The police investigation was separate from a probe by the university, which resulted in the firing of head coach Real Paiement and the suspension of the program through the 2014-2015 season.

Guillaume Donovan, 24, and David Foucher, 25, are charged with sexual assault.

The two men are set to appear in court in Thunder Bay on Sept. 30.

    Young and stupid?.. The court will decide their innocence and or if found guilty.. even a University degree will not help them..

    Lives destroyed for a few minutes with no-consent sex..

      @dama You don't have to be that old or smart to know not to rape. Calling them young and stupid diminishes the seriousness of the crime. I shoplifted when I was "young and stupid".
      And, yes, let's worry about the lives of the accused rather than that of the victim. Crawl into the 21st century.
