Flint hockey boss ousted

March 10, 2022

Flint Firebirds president of hockey operations Terry Christensen has been banned from the Ontario Hockey League by commissioner David Branch.

Branch confirmed that the 67-year old Christensen has been “expelled from the OHL for conduct that is prejudicial to the welfare of the league.”

The banishment of Christensen is the result of alleged remarks he made that violated the OHL’s Harassment and Abuse and Diversity Policy. 

Branch noted that Christensen’s conduct “violated the league’s expectation of the appropriate conduct of a representative of an OHL team and he has lost the privilege to participate in the league.”

The investigation into Christensen began after an allegation was brought forward via the OHL’s player communications system. Rick Westhead of The Sports Network (TSN) reported that Christensen’s ouster from the OHL is the result of making an inappropriate racial comment about a player.

Christensen was brought on as Flint’s hockey boss prior to the start of this season. He had earlier stints with the Firebirds as vice president and general manager that did not end well.

On the ice, the Firebirds are a top OHL team and in a ferocious battle for first place in the 10-member Western Conference.
