Investigation Uncovers Shocking Scandal: Parents Paying Teams to Draft Their Sons

On Wednesday, TSN’s Rick Westhead reported that OHL Commissioner David Branch confirmed that the league hired an investigator to investigate allegations that several hockey parents paid to have their sons selected in the 2022 OHL draft.

According to reports, three GTHL coaches have told me that they have evidence, including text messages, of parents paying $30K or more.

Branch also did not respond to questions about who was hired to investigate claims that parents were paying for their sons to be drafted, the scope of the OHL’s investigation and how long it lasted, or how much the OHL paid its investigator.

More to come as the story progresses…

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
