Daily Dose of the Dub: CHL settles class-action minimum wage lawsuit


CHL settles class-action lawsuit

The CHL settled a class-action lawsuit brought forward by former players stating that players should be subjected to employee standards, and not considered amateur student-athletes. Although the league disagrees with the stance of the players, they opted to come to a settlement to put the issue to bed and return their focus to getting junior hockey players back on the ice. The settlement comes to around $30 million or roughly $250,000 per team in the CHL. The CHL says an insurance policy will cover the settlement. You can read their full statement here.

Meanwhile, a number of former CHL players took to social media on Friday to voice their displeasure with the outcome of the lawsuit, saying players should be grateful for what they do get from the CHL and should not be trying for more.
