Ottawa Senators coach Bryan Murray criticized minor hockey officials in western Quebec and defended the rights of his 8-year-old grand-nephew to play the game yesterday.
Jared Murray, the son of New York Rangers assistant director of player personnel Tim Murray, is at the centre of a controversy after the novice B player was ruled ineligible to compete in a regional tournament.
The 4-foot-9, 110-pound Grade 3 student was deemed to be ``bigger and stronger,” by Hockey Outaouais officials.
“I don’t think anybody should be discriminated against because of size,” Murray said. “It’s parents, it’s administrators of programs I suppose ... that have made this decision and I don’t understand it.”
