Berlin Hockey Players Face 10 Years in Swedish Jail

Ice hockey professionals Yvon Corriveau and Brad Bergen of the Berlin team EHC Eisbären face a sentence of 10 years in jail in Sweden for alleged rape. Public prosecutor Pernilla Alström requested the Canadian and Canadian-German remain in custody for 14 days to investigate the charges against them. The men have been accused of raping a 20-year-old woman in their hotel on Saturday while the team was in the southern Swedish town of Tyringe for a match. "We are prepared to cooperate in every way with the Swedish authorities," Eisbären press spokesman Moritz Hillebrand told the Associated Press.
