More allegations against Graham James
MICHAEL PLATT, QMI Agency
A former junior hockey star now undergoing therapy in Calgary has added his name to a growing list of players pursuing sexual-abuse charges against ex-coach Graham James.
Sources say the unidentified player, who was NHL-bound until his career collided with the recently pardoned pedophile, has asked police to investigate allegations of sexual abuse during the 1990s, while on a team in Saskatchewan.
James, who has already been convicted of abusing two former players, coached the Swift Current Broncos from 1986 to 1994.
The Calgary complaint follows the recent high-profile accusation of former Calgary Flame Theoren Fleury, who has asked Winnipeg police to charge James with sexual abuse.
And there are reports out of Manitoba that two more former players are seeking charges against James, who coached the Fort Garry Blues in the 1980s.
