The Crown has dropped domestic-violence charges against former Montreal Canadiens captain Vincent Damphousse, but his ex-wife is still in trouble with the law.

The Crown plans to pursue its case against Allana Henderson for armed assault and theft under $5,000.

The estranged couple filed criminal charges against each other following a March 2011 altercation that resulted in six charges against Damphousse, 45.

Henderson, 42, is accused of committing assault with her vehicle and stealing a briefcase. She’s scheduled to stand trial in January 2015.

In a statement Tuesday, Damphousse said he’ll return to his job as a hockey analyst this fall.

Damphousse won the Stanley Cup in 1993 with the Montreal Canadiens and served as captain from 1996 to 1999.

He also played for the Toronto Maple Leafs, Edmonton Oilers and San Jose Sharks between 1986 and 2004.
