The Ontario Hockey League is launching a thorough investigation into allegations that the Sudbury Wolves placed a bounty on an opposing player.

According to Jeff Marek of Sportsnet, during a recent game between the Wolves and Barrie Colts, tensions escalated after a hit by Barrie's Kashawn Aitcheson on Sudbury's Nathan Villeneuve.

A fight ensued between Aitcheson and Sudbury's Nolan Collins. Allegations arose that in the subsequent game, Aitcheson was withheld from the Colts' lineup due to a suspected bounty placed by the Wolves.

"According to those sources, word reached the Colts about the possibility of a bounty being placed on Aitcheson, so the organization made a decision not to play him," Marek reported.


Both teams have remained tight-lipped about the issue, and the length of the investigation remains uncertain. Placing a bounty on an opponent carries serious consequences, both within the league and potentially legally.
