The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport announced on Thursday it has asserted an anti-doping rule violation against University of Regina Rams linebacker Michael Stefanovic.
Stefanovic’s urine sample, collected during out-of-competition doping control at the CFL Western Regional Combine in March, revealed the presence of drostanolone, a prohibited anabolic agent.
Under the rules of the Canadian Anti Doping Program, Stefanovic is pursuing a hearing to contest the violation
His case remains open until the conclusion of the hearing and any subsequent appeal.
At this point, Stefanovic does not have an anti-doping rule violation but has been provisionally suspended in accordance with the CADP until the matter has been resolved by an independent arbitrator.
With this happening, Stefanovic is removing himself from Sunday’s CFL draft, but the league says he will be eligible for the 2018 draft.
