According media reports, Mount Pearl native Mark Yetman’s sentencing on two counts of sexual assault that occurred in St. Catherine’s, Ont., has been delayed for six weeks until March 22.
The 24-year-old goaltender was found guilty in October 2012 on charges laid after he and a friend met two women at a Brock University campus bar in December 2009, and took them back to their home where the assaults occurred.
At the time of his arrest, Yetman was a goaltender for the school’s men’s hockey team.
The sexual assault conviction carries a maximum sentence of 10 years.
Yetman played three seasons with the Quebec Major Junior League’s Halifax Mooseheads before attending Brock. Since the charges were laid, he has been living in Newfoundland where he has played senior hockey for the Grand Falls-Windsor Cataracts, the Mount Pearl Samurai and, most recently, the Conception Bay North CeeBee Stars.
The delay in sentencing comes on the verge of the CeeBee’s two-game set with the Gander Flyers that will decide the fourth-and final berth in the Newfoundland Senior Hockey League post-season, which begins next weekend.
