Twin lawsuits were filed Friday against the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League and Western Hockey League by former player Lukas Walter. Seth Joyner Womens Jersey . In his $50-million case against the QMJHL, Walter alleges that the leagues teams conspired to rewrite standard player contracts last year to avoid paying players the legal minimum wage. In a second, $60-million case filed in Calgary against the WHL, Walter alleged that the work visa the Tri-City Americans secured for him to play for them is proof he had an employer-employee relationship with the team, and should be paid at least minimum wage. The lawsuits were both obtained by TSN. Over the past months, the Canadian Hockey Leagues three major junior leagues have come under fire by former players and union organizers over their working conditions for players. While few of the CHLs star players have complained, other lesser-known players contend that they are receiving a pittance while playing for leagues that have become big business. A recent lawsuit showed that former Oshawa Generals president Patricia Campbell was paid $150,000 during her first year on the job. Player agents say coaches and general managers of teams make some $200,000 each per year. So why are players, 95 per cent of whom wont have long careers in the NHL, expected to work for free? asked one NHL player agent. The CHL and its supporters say, fine, well pay minimum wage and you pay for your sticks and room and board. But thats a ridiculous argument. Does Ford make its workers on the line pay for tools? Its the cost of doing business. The agent also pointed out that room and board wouldnt be necessary if the CHL dropped its player draft and allowed players to play for teams near their family home. Walter, from B.C., played the 2013-14 season with the Saint John Sea Dogs. According to his statement of claim against the QMJHL, Walter signed a contract as a 20-year-old player with Saint John on Sept. 13, 2013. He was to receive $476 per week in compensation, and another $90 a week for accommodation, court papers say. Walter played 53 games as a forward for the Sea Dogs, primarily playing the role of an enforcer. He alleges that he was paid $8,314.29 for the six-month season, and that a record of employment shows that he officially worked 1,048 hours over that time for the team. Lukass bi-weekly pay was always the same, no matter how many hours each week he worked for the team, his lawsuit says. In some weeks, he did not receive a fee equivalent to minimum wage, nor did he receive any vacation pay, holiday pay or overtime pay as required under the applicable employment standards legislation. Walter alleged teams in the QMJHL have unlawfully, maliciously ... conspired and agreed together, the one with the other, to act in concert to demand or require that all players sign a contract which (they) knew was unlawful. Walter is asking that the Quebec court certify his case as a class action lawsuit and award damages of $50 million. Walters allegations have not been proven and the QMJHL and Sea Dogs have not filed a response in court. CHL commissioner David Branch did not respond to an email seeking comment. A QMJHL spokesman couldnt be reached for comment. A Sea Dogs spokesman referred calls to the QMJHL. In a second lawsuit filed later Friday, Walter said that he played the 2011-12 and 2012-13 seasons for the Tri-City Americans, earning (U.S.) $70 a week in his first season and (U.S.) $85 a week during his second season. Walter is Canadian and the Americans play in Kennewick, Washington. In order for him to travel to the team, its officials acquired him a P-1 work visa for internationally recognized athletes. The entire time he played for the Americans, he was not a student at any time, the lawsuit says. Walter has sued for $45 million worth of back pay, holiday pay and overtime, and $15 million in punitive damages. He is also seeking to certify the Alberta case as a class action. We have not yet had the opportunity to review the lawsuit received late this afternoon, said WHL commissioner Ron Robison in a statement. The WHL will however vigorously defend our player experience and the extensive investment our ownership makes in our players. We will also be addressing those matters that are being taken out of context and used in lawsuits which have been orchestrated by individuals who have no association with the Canadian hockey system or the WHL. WHL players are amateur athletes who are registered in the Canadian amateur system and they receive an extensive benefit package while playing in our League. There is no indication from our current players or their families that they are being treated in any way but a highly fair and respectful manner. Walters lawsuits came days after another lawsuit was filed by former Ontario Hockey League player Sam Berg against the CHL, the governing body for 60 teams in the OHL, QMJHL and Western Hockey League. A statement of claim filed by Berg on behalf of himself and thousands of other players seeks $180 million in outstanding wages, vacation, holiday and overtime pay and employer payroll contributions, according to legal documents obtained by TSN. The documents filed by Berg show players in the OHL receive $50 to $120 a week in compensation, while players in the QMJHL get $35 to $150, depending on the age of the player. Those aged 16 to 19 get $50 a week in the OHL and $35 a week in the QMJHL. CHL president David Branch has repeatedly said that players in the CHL are student athletes, and are well compensated, thanks largely to an education program the league has in place that provides some players with university scholarships when they are done playing. That description of players as student athletes is now under fire in Walters lawsuit. In past years, players were described as independent contractors by teams in their contracts. But in 2013, at the same time as questions were being raised in the U.S. over whether NCAA student athletes receive their fair share of compensation, the CHL redrafted contracts to remove references to fees, Waltons lawsuit alleges. Instead the players fees were recast as an allowance. QMJHL teams have reworded the former contract to describe the fee as an allowance and to recast the status between players and clubs as one of student athletes in an attempt to avoid minimum-wage laws, Walton says. In the wake of Bergs lawsuit and as the union, Unifor continues efforts to start a players union for major-junior hockey, several player agents told TSN that its common practice for teams to give players T-4 tax slips, which they say is evidence that players are employees, not student athletes as Branch describes them. On Oct. 23, before Walton filed his lawsuit, TSN sent Branch a series of emailed questions. One question was: Some OHL teams issued T4 slips for the 2013 tax year ... doesnt that establish an employee-employer relationship? Branch replied on Oct. 24 that we are not currently issuing T4s and we are not certain what the past practices of our Clubs may have been. The teams are responsible for filing their own tax documents and the league doesnt have access to their detailed information. While TSN has learned that the CHL also has a new TV contract with Rogers Communications that is worth at least $5 million a season (the previous TV contract was a barter deal with no rights fee), Branch declined to discuss terms of the CHLs TV contract. The CHL teams also have relationships with video game companies, as noted by Walter in his lawsuit against the Americans and the WHL. The (WHL) used images of Luke for their own profit, including, but not limited to selling the use of his image and name to video game companies for use in a video game which Luke purchased at full price with his own money, Walters lawsuit says. Branch, meanwhile, was also asked about recent changes to the standard players agreement (SPA) in the OHL. I will reiterate that 97 per cent of our players are represented by agents, in addition, the players and their parents are required to sign the SPA and to either provide a certificate of independent legal counsel or a waiver of such, Branch wrote. Chuck Bednarik Jersey . I suppose Sternberg has earned the right to speak out since his Rays, despite one of the lowest payrolls in the Majors at $58 million, are entering the final weekend of the regular season holding down the first Wild Card spot in the American League, one game ahead of Cleveland and two up on Texas. Mike Quick Womens Jersey . -- Washington Capitals forward Brooks Laich is expected to miss the rest of the regular season after having an operation on a groin muscle. http://www.eaglespromart.com/fletcher-cox-eagles-jersey/ . Right-hander Todd Redmond took the loss. Jose Bautista hit his second home run of the spring. Here are a handful of tidbits from around camp: Hutchison impressive The Blue Jays are being cautious when talking about their young arms but internally, excitement is building over the way Drew Hutchison is looking and performing this spring.SALVADOR, Brazil -- Struggling to find players fit enough after a draining loss to Spain, Italy coach Cesare Prandelli has suggested that FIFA review the worth of third-place games at the Confederations Cup. Italy face Uruguay on Sunday at the Arena Fonte Nova but less than 24 hours before kickoff Prandelli was still trying to determine which players would be fit enough to play. "In a tournament with eight squads maybe the third-place match should be put under review," Prandelli said Saturday. "That said, we will honour the match." With Mario Balotelli and Ignazio Abate already having been sent home injured before the semifinal, key playmaker Andrea Pirlo, centre back Andrea Barzagli and midfielder Claudio Marchisio have now been ruled out with muscle problems. Also, Daniele De Rossi, Giorgio Chiellini and Alberto Gilardino have not recovered from Thursdays game vs. Spain, which Italy lost 7-6 in the penalty shootout after extra time ended 0-0. The Spain match was played in searing heat and humidity and the third-place match could be a sweaty affair, too. With a 1 p.m, its the only game of the tournament that will start in the middle of the day. "Ive got three players out and three others who havent recuperated yet," Prandelli said. "Right now its difficult to say who will play." Prandelli will likely resort to forwards like Stephan El Shaarawy, Alessandro Diamanti and Alessio Cerci, who have seen little action thus far. Defender Davide Astori, the only outfield player who has not seen action yet, could also be an option, and Salvatore Sirigu or Federico Marchetti will likely replace captain Gianluigi Buffon in goal. "Its an opportunity to gain some exxperience," Prandelli said. Brian Dawkins Jersey. "Because were facing a squad that has a lot of character." Entering the tournament, the 20-year-old El Shaarawy was expected to pair with Balotelli in attack like at AC Milan but his only action thus far were the final 18 minutes in the final group game vs. Brazil. El Shaarawy led Italys Serie A with 14 goals in the first half of the recently concluded Serie A season but managed only two after Balotelli transferred to Milan in January. "He had a long season and when as a young kid you reach certain objectives its difficult to bounce back and do it again," Prandelli said. "If he plays tomorrow he needs to be ready. Well see." South American champion Uruguay features three experienced and talented forwards in Diego Forlan, Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez. Playing for Napoli, Cavani led Serie A this past season with 29 goals. "Its a squad we respect a lot, a squad that has shown it is able to adapt to any opponent," Prandelli said. "Tactically, this is the toughest match to prepare." The Spain match was also a challenge, one that Italy won tactically by many standards, but Prandelli feels this game is tougher because of the physical state of his squad. "Right now Im having trouble putting players in place," the coach said. "These are two completely different matches." Uruguay lost its semifinal 2-1 to Brazil on Wednesday, a day earlier than the Spain-Italy match. "It would be ideal if you could organize a tournament where everyone has the same chance," Prandelli said. "If one squad has fewer transfers and more days to recuperate thats an advantage."
