Charlottetown Islanders forward Adam Marsh is facing an impaired driving charge.
The 20-year-old forward from Chicago was arrested by Charlottetown Police Services on Nov. 13, but the charge wasn't filed with the court until last week.
The Islanders announced on Nov. 16 that Marsh would be away from the team to deal with a “personal matter” and wouldn’t elaborate.
“The whole organization is fully supportive of Adam while he deals with the issues,” head coach and general manager Jim Hulton said Wednesday. “Everyone wants what's best for Adam, and hopefully something positive can come out an unfortunate moment.”
Marsh is scheduled to appear in court on Dec. 14.
Marsh, who was acquired in January from the Val-d’Or Foreurs, was second in team scoring with 15 points in 19 games when he left the team.
