The NHL's newest merchandise and uniform partner, Fanatics, has also removed the merchandise and uniforms associated with the players involved.



However, retired NHL players such as P.K. Subban and Corey Schneider are still available to NHL fans everywhere.

The players who have had to leave their teams as a result of the investigation are Alex Formenton, who currently plays in Switzerland, and Carter Hart, who is still a player rostered by the Philadelphia Flyers.

The police have yet to charge any players in connection with the investigation, and a press conference will be held on Monday to answer any questions related to the case.
