A player with the Adirondack Thunder is on indefinite leave from the team.

This follows published reports that forward Noah Corson faces sexual assault charges from an alleged incident in 2016 in Quebec, reports NewsChannel 13’s media partners at The Post-Star.

Corson will not play for the remainder of this season, citing the legal matters, says Thunder General Manager Jeff Mead.

Reports say Corson is one of three men accused of sexual assault against a minor in Quebec.

He was 18 at the time of the alleged incident and was playing in the Junior Hockey League.

The team released this statement:

“The Adirondack Thunder learned yesterday of the allegations against Noah Corson, currently assigned to Adirondack from the Utica Comets, who has announced he is taking a leave of absence. Neither the organization, nor its players, have any further comment.”
