CATHARINES, CANADA – May 5, 2023 – We recently received the decision of the OHL Commissioner regarding the findings of their investigation against the Niagara IceDogs Hockey Club and two of its players, along with the sanctions imposed upon the club, the players, and the club’s owner and general manager, Darren DeDobbelaer, pursuant to said findings.
We are taking these findings very seriously, and we are fully cooperating with the Commissioner’s office to bring clarity to the situation. We are also focusing on providing support and services to the rest of our players and their families during this difficult time through channels within our organization, the league and outside our organization.
We will continue to communicate with our players and families and update our stakeholders as further developments arise.
The Niagara IceDogs want to make it very clear that The league and The Club put tremendous emphasis on our players well being and safety. The League and The Club are here to ensure the best experience for our players on and off the ice.
We kindly ask that you direct any questions or inquiries regarding this matter to the league office’s attention.
