The Kitchener Rangers of the OHL have taken legal action against a University of Michigan student newspaper and one of its reporters for publishing a story that alleged the team offered defenceman Jacob Trouba $200,000 to play for it.
A story that appeared in The Michigan Daily last week alleged that
the Rangers tried to coax Trouba, a first-round draft pick of the
Winnipeg Jets last month, out of a deal to play for the Michigan
The Rangers have now sued the newspaper and reporter Matt Slovin, according to the Waterloo Region Record.
"It's not a threat anymore," Rangers chief operating officer Steve
Bienkowski told the Record Monday. "We served the newspaper and the
writer there to either back it up or retract it."
The Rangers drafted Trouba two years ago but he declined to play,
opting for the U.S. National Team Development Program instead. He has
committed to Michigan but will lose his NCAA eligibility if he signs
with the Jets.
