Former NHL forward Mike Comrie is being investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department after being accused of rape, law enforcement sources told TMZ Sports.

Comrie met a female acquaintance at a bar Saturday and returned to his Los Angeles condo, where she reportedly says he raped her multiple times. The woman said she almost immediately visited Cedars-Sinai Medical Center afterward and underwent an examination for a rape kit.

He acknowledges they had sex but insists it was consensual, sources say.

Comrie skated 589 games in the NHL, last appearing with the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2011.
