More than two weeks after a professional hockey player’s on-ice death, an arrest was made for manslaughter.
On Oct. 28, 29-year-old Adam Johnson of the Nottingham Panthers took a fatal slash to the throat, reportedly from the skate of opposing player Matt Petgrave of the Sheffield Steelers. Tuesday, though the name of the arrestee was not supplied by the South Yorkshire Police, a statement was released detailing that an arrest was made and the suspect remained in custody.
According to the police, “Detectives have today arrested a man on suspicion of manslaughter. He remains in police custody at this time.”
