LAS VEGAS (AP) - A 35-year-old former pro hockey player is facing prison time and will have to register as a sex offender after taking a plea deal in Las Vegas in a case alleging he sexually assaulted a girl under 14 years of age over a four-year period.
Prosecutor Alexandra Chrysanthis said Friday that Michael McBain pleaded guilty Thursday in Clark County District Court to reduced charges of attempted sexual assault and attempted lewdness with a child.
McBain's lawyer, Robert Draskovich, was unavailable Friday for comment.

McBain played for the Tampa Bay Lightning from 1997 to 1999 and for the minor league Las Vegas Wranglers from 2003 to 2008.
