Corson was 18 at the time of the assault and played for the Drummondville Voltigeurs. He is the son of former Montreal Canadiens centre Shayne Corson.
The Youth Criminal Justice Act forbids the identification of the other two young men involved in the assault. They pleaded guilty last year to sexual assault charges in youth court.
According to the agreed statement of facts, the complainant did not know the two Voltigeurs players before meeting them on the night of the assault. She had been seeing the third young man for a few weeks but was not in a relationship with him.
After spending part of the evening at a restaurant, the group went to the victim’s home. Sexual acts were then initiated with the victim and escalated to group sexual activity to which the victim did not consent.
During the assault, one of the underage accused captured a video on his cell phone.
Radio-Canada reported that Noah Corson left the courtroom with his hands over his face.
The parties are due back in court on May 3 for sentencing.
