Munich, Germany - DEL players Brad Bergen and Yvon Corriveau of the Berlin Eisbären, who were arrested as rape suspects in Sweden on Sunday, will remain in jail for at least two weeks.

Eisbaren GM Kornett: "Everyone is responsible for their own actions"

The 36- and 37-year-old Canadians are accused of raping a 20-year-old local girl in their hotel in Tyringe, 400 miles southwest of Stockholm during a preseason trip.

Suspicions "strong enough"

Swedish authorities said the suspicions against the two fathers were strong enough to keep them detained. According to defence lawyers, a prosecutor is preparing possible charges of rape.
Under Swedish law, a suspect can be detained for two weeks while an investigation continues. If prosecutors haven't filed charges by then, they must request another detention hearing to keep a suspect in jail. The players' Swedish lawyers announced they would appeal the decision. One of the lawyers stressed his client was innocent and "shocked, sad and upset" by the allegation.

Players suspended indefinitely

In the meantime, Berlin’s GM Detlef Kornett announced that the two players were suspended indefinitely by the club. He also confirmed that five other Eisbären players, who were initially arrested on Saturday and released later that day, were no longer part of the investigation.

"We hope that the investigation will have a positive ending for Corriveau and Bergen", Kornett said. "But everyone is responsible for their own actions. Neither other players nor the Eisbären organisation can be blamed for this incident."
