Former Cougar Weighs In On CHL Lawsuit

Prince George, BC, Canada / CKPG News

There’s been a battle going on in the courts for a couple of years now between CHL players and team owners. Hundreds of current and former junior hockey players, including some Cougars, are arguing that they deserve to paid some sort of wage. The owners are saying they aren’t making enough money and would go bankrupt if they had to pay the players. Last week, in what seemed to be a pretty good development for the players, an Alberta court ruled that teams would have to open up their books to back up their arguments. There’s lots of people on both sides of the issue. I caught up with former Cougar Tyler Brough to get his perspective as a former CHL player.
