Former hockey player from ‘Spartacus’ spotted on ‘Edmonton’ accused of sexual violence

MOSCOW, September 19 – RIA Novosti. Former Spartak Moscow forward Jacob Virtanen has signed a tracking contract with the Edmonton Oilers, according to the National Hockey League (NHL) club’s official website.

The 26-year-old Virtanen played 36 games and scored 16 points (9 goals + 7 assists) in the regular season of the Continental Hockey League as part of the Red-Whites in the 2021/22 season. In March, the hockey player left the place of the Moscow club.

Edmonton has also reportedly signed a contract with defender Jason Demers, 34, who played nine games in Kazan “Ak Bars” last season and also represented the Canadian team at the Olympic Games and played in five games.

Vancouver selected Virtanen in the first round of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. The hockey player is the winner of the 2015 World Youth Championship as part of the Canadian national team. In total, he has 100 points (55 + 45) in 317 games during the NHL regular season.

It was previously reported that a woman who wanted to remain anonymous accused Virtanen of sexual misconduct in September 2017 when Virtanen was playing for the Vancouver NHL club. An investigation was launched in May 2021. In January 2022, TSN reported that the attacker had been charged with sexual assault, citing the Vancouver Police Department. In July, the TV channel reported that a jury found Virtanen not guilty of sexual assault.
