Calgary Flames prospect Brett Kulak is facing criminal charges after an altercation at a party this summer in Delta, B.C.

Kulak, who was selected by the Flames in the fourth round of the 2012 NHL Draft and is in his third season with the Western Hockey League's Vancouver Giants, is charged with assault causing bodily harm and uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm.

According to reports out of Vancouver, the 19-year-old defenceman is due back in court Nov. 20.

Giants forward Jackson Houck, a draft pick of the Edmonton Oilers, was also charged with assault causing bodily harm in connection with the Aug. 18 incident.

“What we can say is that our players are held to a higher standard and, for the most part, live up to that. This is the first instance that we have had a player have to go to court, and that is unfortunate,” said Giants owner Ron Toigo in a statement released Saturday.

“Both these players have been, and are, very good citizens and have been good members of our community. It is unfortunate that one negative incident gets the attention instead of all the good things that have been done.
