A member of the University of Ottawa men’s hockey team is speaking out after weeks of silence.

Pat Burns, a fifth-year psychology student, wrote an open letter to U of O president Allan Rock detailing his achievements and contributions at the university, and expressing his frustration that his name has been tarnished.

Burns writes that he has been cooperative with police in the investigation into the alleged gang sexual assault of a female by members of the hockey team when they were in Thunder Bay at the end of January.

Global News published his letter to Rock on April 1.

No further details of the case have been released.
