Court date for alleged domestic assault involving Winnipeg councillor, ex-NHLer

WINNIPEG - A court date has been set for a Winnipeg city councillor and former professional hockey player accused of domestic violence.

Thomas Steen's case is set to go before a judge for the first time June 23 on two counts of assault and one count of uttering threats.

Steen played for 14 years with the National Hockey League Winnipeg Jets before he retired in 1995, and has served on city council since 2010.

Steen is accused of assaulting a woman at a restaurant May 1, and has been released on conditions that he not contact the alleged victim and abstain from alcohol and other intoxicants.

He has remained on council but has removed himself from the Winnipeg Police Board—a civilian group that oversees the city's police force.

He released a short statement earlier this month in which he said he was taking time to "deal with a private personal matter."
