Curtis Toneff, an assistant coach with the Humboldt Broncos, has been suspended by the team after being charged by the RCMP, according to a statement from the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League.
The statement, posted to Twitter on Sunday, states the board of the Humboldt Broncos “acknowledges that Curtis has been charged by the RCMP” and that Toneff will have no further association with the team until further notice.
It also says Toneff will be appearing in court in the near future and that the board will not comment further.
In an email Monday morning, RCMP confirmed Toneff was charged with assault on June 2 for an incident that happened on May 24.
He is scheduled to appear in court on Aug. 17.
Toneff joined the team ahead of the 2019-20 season.
