Quote:
The owner of the Flint Firebirds junior hockey team has apologized for firing his coaching staff over the weekend, saying he made an “irresponsible mistake.”

Rolf Nilsen says in a statement that the team took immediate steps today to reinstate the coaches after every member of the team handed in his jersey and quit in protest on Sunday.

According to multiple reports, Nilsen fired head coach John Gruden and assistants Dave Karpa and Petr Jonak because his son — defenceman Hakon Nilsen — was not receiving enough playing time.

A black eye for the OHL? Uhhh, no. These kids stood up against injustice and I hope the character these young men demonstrated here earns them all a shot at the NHL one day.

I applaud these young men. Potentially risking their own future to support the coaching staff is commendable.
