Ice Dogs lose first round picks for violating recruitment policies
 
Toronto, ON – The Ontario Hockey League, (OHL), has levied fines totalling $250,000.00 against the Niagara IceDogs Hockey Club and taken away 1st round draft selections in the 2019 and 2021 OHL Priority Selection process.

These fines follow a League-requested third-party investigation by the law firm of Lax O’Sullivan Lisus Gottlieb LLP. This investigation found that the Club violated certain League player recruitment policies.

“The League takes our commitment to our players and their player experience very seriously, which includes ensuring a fair and competitive on-ice experience among all teams. In order to maintain the integrity of this player experience and competitiveness within the league, it is critical that all clubs operate within the league recruitment guidelines. When a club ignores these guidelines, significant sanctions are required,” said David Branch, OHL Commissioner.

Some one joked on the OHL fan forum what price will London be charged.

This could prove to be the end of junior hockey as we know it here in the city.The two 1st round picks up coming are in dire need. Do we see a fire sale in the near future ?

I am sure they were going to trade Thomas next season maybe Tominssino Roberts Paquette if he back to recoup picks I wonder if they can appeal the decision .

The IceDogs fourth in attendance average just behind Oshawa will be a big blow to the OHL I am sure they might reduce the sanctions like they did a few years back with Kitchener I believe.

Ah,,,, here we go with the fire sale crap again....

Not going to happen.

Windsor went through the same a few years ago and I believe it cost them more than us and they are still in the league with the same ownership.

Is this a joke? Did this really happen? How soon can the Burke Boys’ resignations be tendered? Is there a General Manager on standby?
