An interesting story is emerging north of the border surrounding 2007 fifth-round draft pick Brett Morrison. Apparently, the QMJHL is withholding the education reimbursement Morrison believes he is owed under league rules, for the four years he spent in juniors.
Morrison said he could even understand it if they denied him his money for his last two seasons when he wasn’t able to fulfil his schooling obligations, but finds it hard to swallow that they won’t come through for the seasons he did meet the league’s requirements. He is now considering legal action.
“Even if they decided to give me the money for the years I met the requirements, at least that would be something to show for my four years,” he said.
