WINDSOR (CBS Detroit) - A Windsor Spitfires player is facing sexual assault charges in connection with alleged attacks on young women at Ontario bars.

Ben Johnson, 18, from Calumet in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, was expected to be released on bail on Tuesday.

A 16-year-old girl told police that Johnson attacked her at a Mynt nightclub where the Spitfires were holding an end-of-season and St. Patrick’s Day party.

The Windsor Star reported a 20-year-old woman then came forward claiming Johnson attacked her last month at a bar in Windsor.

Johnson was New Jersey Devils’ pick in the 2012 NHL draft, but he was never signed. He was the winner of the 2011 Michigan Mr. Hockey Award.

The Windsor Spitfires are a junior ice hockey team in the Ontario Hockey League.
