Singh sees the player payment issue as part of the growing pains for the league and its team owners.
“We have to realize that for new or foreign owners, the procedural process of due financial compliance is long as well. And that’s where we give them that slight leeway, but there’s no way, shape or form that we would want our players or staff to ever go through this again and we will ensure that it never happens again,” he said.
Rayad Emrit, the captain of the Winnipeg Hawks, said the money issue has been resolved.
“We’ve come to an understanding with the league,” he said. “It’s something that you don’t really want to have as players in the league, but there’s always going to be mishaps. It’s the second time this league is running and they’re still trying to get their act in order, but they’ve been communicating with us and I think everything is on par now.”
