Todd Gillingham's name was called in two St. John's courtrooms Friday morning: once for a status update on 31 charges he's facing, and once for three new charges.

Those new charges include two counts of unlawfully entering a woman's home with the intention to commit a crime in January and March of last year, as well as a charge of wilfully intercepting private communication in November 2017.

GIllingham didn't appear in court, but was represented by lawyer Bob Buckingham, who asked for all matters to be set over until May 27.

Buckingham indicated to the court last month that his client — who played four seasons in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League and four seasons in the AHL for the St. John’s Maple Leafs, as well as for local senior hockey teams before retiring about 10 years ago — might be suffering from the effects of traumatic brain injury and is undergoing medical assessment.

The charges against Gillingham have piled up over the past year, and include allegations of impaired driving, harassing a woman, shoplifting, violating the province's Family Violence Protection Act and breaching court orders.
