    Recently Ontario Hockey League Commissioner David Branch met with representatives of the Windsor Spitfires Hockey Club to review the sanctions taken by the League against the Windsor Spitfires for violations of the League’s Player Recruitment Policy. This had resulted in the Windsor Spitfires having to make a payment of $400,000, as well as losing three first round draft selections, and two second round draft selections.

    During the meeting with the Commissioner, the Windsor Spitfires accepted that there were certain violations of the League’s Recruitment Policy.

    The OHL says that in recognition of the acknowledgement and the cooperation of the Windsor Spitfires, Commissioner Branch has modified earlier decision and the team will now pay to the League a payment of $250,000.00 and will lose a first round draft pick in 2013, a second round draft pick in 2015 a first round draft pick in 2016 and a second round draft pick in 2017. As a result the Windsor Spitfires will not appeal the decision.
