Fronts Set Record Straight with TSN
TSN has issued an update to one of their news stories posted on Wednesday that erroneously claimed the Kingston Frontenacs were the most profitable team in the Ontario Hockey League in 2016.
After catching wind of the story, the Frontenacs Hockey Club put out their own statement Wednesday afternoon, saying the numbers the sports network used were inaccurate because they belonged to Kingston Frontenacs Hockey Limited, not the Hockey Club.
"The story posted on TSN's website on Tuesday, February 28, 2017 detailing the financials of the Kingston Frontenacs was inaccurate and does not detail the true picture of the financial reality of the Kingston Frontenacs", says Justin Chenier, Executive Director of Business Operations with the Kingston Frontenacs.
"However, TSN has since updated the story to represent the true financial picture of the Kingston Frontenacs in 2016 that shows a financial loss of $366,611."
The team also said they will not be making any future comments on the matter as they are one of 41 Canadian Hockey League teams currently before the courts as part of a $180-million class action lawsuit.
The suit was launched by roughly 400 past and current CHL players who believe athletes playing at this level deserve to be paid minimum wage.
