OHA has now stolen player Curt Lazar, a top WHL drafted player # 2 overall, from well respected POE by offering his family a completely FREE RIDE at Okanagan Hockey Academy. Some say this is a clear illustration of just how far the ownership at OHA has stooped in an effort to revive their dying program.
If the talk is about development, how will OHA accomplish this by surrounding this young man with low level players? How do the Americans feel footing the full tuition bill when they know OHA is busily passing out full ride scholarships? It's more of the same at OHA; the Americans pay the bill and the program continues to rape the dreams of young players.
Wonder how their enrolment is fairing this year?
