The Ontario Hockey League (OHL) has reached a settlement with the Niagara IceDogs Hockey Club with regard to the club’s violation of player recruitment rules. The club will pay a fine of $150,000.00 and shall forfeit its first round pick in the 2021 OHL Priority Selection Draft.
The club has acknowledged that it violated OHL player recruitment rules. The club recognizes the importance of these rules and agrees to comply.
This settlement follows the league announcement in February that the league had levied fines against the club and had taken away first round draft selections in the OHL Priority Selection process.
