Decision Coming Soon

Following today’s Ryan Tesink trade hearing involving the Saint John Sea Dogs and Blainville-Boisbriand Armada, the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League issued an update stating there is nothing to update at this point.

Here’s the league’s massive 40-word release:

Following a meeting today concerning the case of the Ryan Tesink trade, the Saint John Sea Dogs, Blainville-Boisbriand Armada and Quebec Major Junior Hockey League will not comment any further. The Commissioner will submit his decision following a review process.

So now we wait.

If you are new to this saga, Tesink, who was traded to the Armada in exchange for a first-round pick during the holiday trading period, has not played since January 13 due to a knee injury. The Armada are claiming the Sea Dogs were aware of the injury before the trade took place.

If you missed Andrew McGilligan’s column today regarding the league’s “no further comment” stance on situations like these, it’s an excellent read.

    This is very hard to understand from an outsiders perspective....Tesink played all of his games in Saint John save for a game when he was suspended by the league prefect and then he went to BBA and played another six games and the BBA management team are claiming deceit and distortion in the elemnets of this trade?.....any decision in favour of BBA will be a unjust joke and will further solidify the common held belief that the QMJHL management crew are biased toward the Quebec based franchises at the expense of the more successful Maitime franchise teams....Perhaps its time to consdewr an Atlantic Junior League with gteams from the four Atlantioc provinces for thought.
