A junior college in Quebec is investigating after members of the school’s men’s hockey team allegedly engaged in “unacceptable” behavior at a private event.
Cégep de Saint-Hyacinthe, located in St-Hyacinthe, Que., about 65 kilometers southeast of Montreal, says the unspecified incident violated rules put in place by the coach and school.
University spokeswoman Annie Hulmann declines to discuss the nature of the allegations, but says they occurred at a private event in October that was held off campus and did not involve than hockey team players.
The school says it has met with all the actors involved, including some minors.

Hulmann says Quebec provincial police were alerted but found no charges.
“As soon as we were made aware of the situation, we contacted law enforcement authorities, who took over the case,” Hulmann wrote in an email Friday. “They concluded there was no reason to press charges.”
In a statement, the college said Friday that it emphasizes the importance of ethical and respectful behavior at the start of each season.
The school said it had “recently been made aware of a situation regarding its hockey team and unacceptable actions by some players.”
“The college reiterated to all actors the obligation to behave according to the values of diversity, inclusion, benevolence, responsibility and respect.”
