Two former players of the Victoriaville Tigres have been sentenced to prison terms for s3xu@lly assaulting a 17-year-old woman in June 2021.

Nicolas Daigle received a sentence of 32 months, while Massimo Siciliano was sentenced to 30 months. Judge Thomas Jacques emphasized the full moral responsibility of both men, now 21 years old, describing the imbalance of power during the assault as manifestly unequal.
The incident occurred after their team's victory in the President's Cup final, in a hotel room where the team was staying. The young woman was invited by Daigle, but Siciliano was also present despite her expressed wish to be alone with Daigle.
She described feeling trapped and never consenting to the subsequent threesome.
Defense lawyers argued for community sentences, while the prosecution recommended harsher penalties, citing the social context and the need to deter similar behaviors.
