“Hazing” To The Extreme

from the CP at the Globe and Mail,

The Manitoba Junior Hockey League and officials with one of its teams are refusing to talk about reports that players were forced to walk naked around their locker room with water bottles tied to their genitals as part of a hazing ritual.

Earlier this week, the Neepawa Natives junior hockey team was fined $5,000 and some of its coaches and players were suspended for the incident, but the league refused to reveal details about what went on.

On Wednesday, media reports surfaced saying the ritual involved water bottles being tied to the players’ scrotums and towels being thrown on the bottles to add weight.

Manitoba Junior Hockey League commissioner Kim Davis would not confirm the reports.

“I’m not going to provide that information,” Davis said. “I don’t think it’s useful or necessary.”
