College Hockey:
UVM Whistleblower Latulippe Retracts Some Claims At Deposition

— Former player Corey Latulippe, whose accusations were central to the hazing scandal which rocked the University of Vermont and led to the cancellation of the men’s hockey season, recanted some of his allegations in a recent federal deposition.

According to the Associated Press, Latulippe, who was a walk-on freshman goaltender with the Catamounts last season, acknowledged making false statements to investigators with the Vermont attorney general’s office.

The retracted statements included a claim that his dismissal from the team came as a result of his whistleblowing, and an earlier assertion that he had been pressured by teammates to drink illegally at a local bar.

Latulippe did not, however, alter his accounts of the party last October at which Vermont freshmen were hazed, a team party which touched off an internal investigation and eventually led to the cancellation of the Catamounts’ season by the UVM administration.
