Criminal charges against a former National Hockey League player agent accused of defrauding two of his clients have been stayed after he died.
Court officials confirmed the charges against Stacey Don McAlpine were stayed on March 7.
An obituary in the Winnipeg Free Press said McAlpine, 54, died at home in his sleep on March 5.
McAlpine was accused of defrauding former NHL players Dany Heatley and Chris Phillips of more than $ 12 million between January 2004 and June 2011.
At the time, he was a player agent and business adviser who was supposed to invest the players’ money.
