While the 2018 edition of Team Canada junior is currently making headlines for the wrong reasons, a new scandal has just hit the hockey world.

Indeed, according to information from TSN journalist Rick Westhead, a player for the Adirondack Thunder, the ECHL affiliate of the New Jersey Devils, finds himself in serious trouble.

It is Noah Corson, the son of Shayne Corson, who is well-known to Montreal fans and played for the Canadiens from 1985-1986 to 1991-1992.

According to current information, Noah Corson has pleaded guilty to serious charges and will inevitably spend several years in prison.

"Former Drummondville Voltigeurs player, Noah Corson, was found guilty today of committing a s****l a**** against a teenager under the age of 16.

Corson, who is now 25 years old, was 18 at the time of the events in the fall of 2016. He was not drafted into the NHL.

Two other hockey players, one of whom played with Corson for Drummondville, have already pleaded guilty in juvenile court for their role in this unforgivable act.

One of these players testified at Corson's trial, according to Le Journal de Montréal.
