Okotoks Online is aware that a discriminatory statement was made by an Okotoks Oilers employee during a live radio broadcast on Wednesday (Mar. 29) and heard on The Eagle 100.9. 

The Oilers organization moved quickly and has released the following statement:

During the March 29th, 2023 game broadcast of the AJHL playoff game between the Okotoks Oilers and Brooks Bandits, the colour commentator for the Okotoks Oilers made a discriminatory comment and as such has been permanently removed from the broadcast crew.   The Okotoks Oilers and Alberta Junior Hockey League apologize to all those who heard the comment and will not tolerate this type of behaviour.

The Eagle apologizes for any hurt or harm the Oilers commentator may have caused.
