MONTREAL -- Allana Henderson, the estranged wife of former NHLer Vincent Damphousse, appeared in court Wednesday and was formally charged with assault with a weapon and theft.

Henderson, 40, was granted bail and brushed past reporters on her way out of the downtown courthouse.

Damphousse's criminal complaint alleges he was threatened with a weapon and that one of his suitcases was stolen.

The squabbling spouses have filed charges against each other in an alleged series of domestic incidents dating back to 2008.

The dispute became public last week when Damphousse, 43, was charged with six counts of assault for various alleged confrontations. Damphousse was arrested March 31 and pleaded not guilty before being freed on a promise to appear in court. He and Henderson are both scheduled to return to court July 12.

Damphousse, who won a Stanley Cup with the Montreal Canadiens in 1993, accuses Henderson of trumping up the charges during divorce proceedings.

Drafted by the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1986, Vincent Damphousse subsequently played for the Edmonton Oilers, the Montreal Canadiens and the San Jose Sharks. He recorded 1,205 points, including 432 goals, in 1,378 NHL games.

Henderson and Damphousse are known for their charitable work to raise funds for research into ALS, a degenerative ailment also known as Lou Gehrig's disease.
