The Ontario Hockey League is one of three Canadian major junior leagues facing a $180-million class-action lawsuit, which argues players should be paid minimum wage. The 16-to 20-year-olds who make up the league are typically billeted with local families, covered for equipment, travel and expenses, and offered scholarships and, ultimately, a chance at major league play. The OHL argues they are amateur athletes and that many teams can't afford this expense. The Agenda explores one of hockey's most divisive issues.
