OHL Announces Sanctions Against the Niagara IceDogs Hockey Club

 

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.
