Mark Recchi Statement On CHL Players Union

via Our Sports Central,

Kamloops, BC - Former Western Hockey League and Canadian Hockey League player Mark Recchi, a three-time NHL Stanley Cup Champion and member of the Kamloops Blazers Ownership Group, together with owners Tom Gaglardi and former players Jarome Iginla, Shane Doan and Darryl Sydor, provided the following statement:

“I can assure you my partners and I would not be involved in a CHL franchise if we didn’t believe our first priority was to look after the best interest of our players,” stated former CHL and NHL player Mark Recchi, “when you consider all of the improvements CHL teams have made to the player experience, from the quality of coaching and training facilities, to offering a fully guaranteed scholarship program, I can’t imagine anyone could question our commitment to the players.”

“I believe CHL Clubs have always acted in the best interests of the players and I am concerned how a new approach may impact on our ability to continue to do this,” added Recchi.

The good Dr. should be given a prescription of ‘keep your mouth shut’ and stick with the pre-written statement.
