The OHL announced that they have suspended Montreal Canadiens first-round pick Logan Mailloux indefinitely “for violating the league’s expectation for appropriate conduct by a player.”
The league said that the suspension stems from an incident that took place while Mailloux was on loan to SK Lejon in Sweden last November.
Mailloux was charged and fined under Swedish law last year for taking a photo of himself and a young woman during an “intimate moment” and then sharing the photo with his teammates; the photo was taken without the woman’s consent.
The league said that Mailloux can apply for reinstatement to the league on Jan. 1. A few days before the 2021 NHL Draft, Mailloux posted a statement asking teams not to select him, but the Canadiens still drafted him in the first round. The pick was widely criticized, including drawing a negative reaction from Canadian prime minster Justin Trudeau.
