Flames Renounce Rights to Young top Prospect

In recent news, the Calgary Flames have dropped any and all ties with young up-and-coming player Topi Ronni yesterday. After news has spread about the player's horrendous history, Ronni was given a one year suspended prison sentence. This has forced Calgary to renounce their right to second round draft pick Topi Ronni.

Topi Rönni (#Flames) has been sentenced to a one-year suspended sentence for rape by the Helsinki district court. Rönni was 17 years old at the time of the incident. The ruling is not final.


Tappara is set to comment on the situation later via an announcement.
Ronni was playing in the Finnish Liiga for Tappara. Upon hearing the abhorrent news of Ronni's actions from back in 2021, Ronni's situation became concerning among his teammates. Surprisingly, Ronni was allowed back on the ice for Tappara after allegations were directed towards him. He continued to play for the team until the prison sentence yesterday, and was subsequently dropped without question. Although not technically banned from playing again, any team and/or league with common sense will think twice before allowing this offender to represent what they believe in for the future of sports.
