10 - year - old ' s suspension by Hockey Alberta being called ' heavy - handed '. Bryce Kohler, 10, has been suspended indefinitely by Hockey Alberta after he was found to be playing in two different hockey leagues.

Somebody reported it to Hockey Alberta and Kohler was suspended from his minor hockey team.

Team Revolution plays in what's considered a "super league." The team plays in various tournaments in and out of the province, as well as against eight other similarly assembled teams across the province.

Playing in both leagues is a no-no according to Hockey Alberta rules, and now Kohler has been suspended from the league indefinitely.

"We're upset because of the regulation itself, that Hockey Canada has the power to tell my son that he can't play anything else but minor hockey," said his father, Ryan Kohler.

"All we were trying to do was get out there and play a few more games somewhere," he said. "They have the ability to tell him what he can and can't do. We just think that's heavy-handed and wrong."

In a Hockey Alberta memorandum to all minor hockey associations last April, teams were warned that any players who play for "unregistered programs and non-sanctioned leagues" that don't fall under the Hockey Alberta/Hockey Canada umbrella will face "loss of all privileges with Hockey Alberta and Hockey Canada for the remainder of that season."  

"It may be perceived as heavy-handed, but it is a policy and a process that gives the family, that gives the individual player, the choice," said Brad Lyon, spokesperson for Hockey Alberta.

Saskatchewan ends ban on Alberta licence plates

  Saskatchewan ends ban on Alberta licence plates EDMONTON - The licence plate fight between Saskatchewan and Alberta is over. An Alberta government spokesman says Saskatchewan informed them by letter today it is rescinding its ban on vehicles with Alberta licence plates on Saskatchewan government project sites. Jean-Marc Prevost, who speaks for Alberta Economic Development Minister Deron Bilous, says Saskatchewan did not give any reasons for its decision. The letter arrived just hours before an arbitration panel under the New West Partnership was set to begin deliberations on the licence plate ban.

Jim Pickford started Team Revolution Hockey five years ago mainly because he was fed up with the restrictions put in place by Hockey Canada. 

"I just had enough of minor hockey and I just didn't see the value of keeping my kids in it, so we started our own brand," said Pickford, who now has 45 athletes signed up playing on three teams against similar teams across the province. 

'Definitely a dictatorship'

"It's definitely a dictatorship," Pickford said of Hockey Alberta.

"It's created a real monster and I just think they're used to doing what they just want and people are afraid to stand up because of the repercussions it has for their kid moving on in hockey."

As for Bryce Kohler, Pickford said he's behind him all the way. If he isn't reinstated with his minor hockey team, Pickford said there's a spot for him on Team Revolution.

Kohler's minor hockey team is also standing behind him. The association has said it will pay the $200 fee to get him reinstated, if possible.
