Former Winnipeg Jets forward Thomas Steen is set to go to court on June 23 to face two counts of assault and one count of uttering threats, the Canadian Press reports.
Steen, 53, is accused of assaulting a woman at a restaurant on May 1. News of the charges broke six days later and Steen — who’s son, Alexander, currently plays for the St. Louis Blues — promptly stepped down from the Winnipeg Police Board, which he sat on while serving as a city councillor, a position he undertook in 2010 and still currently maintains.
Steen spent his entire 14-year career with the Jets and had his No. 25 retired in 1995. He represented the Jets at the 1990 NHL All-Star game and was later named as a “Honoured Member” of the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame.
