Air Canada Caught Hiding World Junior Players Equipment to Favour Canada

The finest NHL players and the league's top prospects are both represented by Allan Walsh, who is a more well-known NHL agent.

In addition to Halifax, Nova Scotia, this year's World Juniors are being held in New Brunswick. In order to meet up with their team before the competition starts, many players, if not all, must arrange their own transportation to the tournament.

David Jiricek, the sixth-overall choice in the 2022 NHL Draft, who is currently playing for the Columbus Blue Jackets, is one prospect who is dealing with major problems. Did you think that was terrible enough that Jiricek's equipment had entirely vanished from the airport? Without any justification, he also cannot be located with his sticks, equipment, full set of clothes, or anything else he brought.

Jiricek has no equipment, although his squad is scheduled to begin the competition at 6:30 PM today.


Allan Walsh, his representative, claimed he spent several hours on the phone with Air Canada trying to track down the gear and personal items of his athletes, but without success. Jiricek needs specialized gear because he is 6 feet 3 inches tall; he can't just walk into any hockey store and get new gear.

After Jiricik's agent openly criticized Air Canada on social media, things quickly changed; bizarrely, a few hours later, he got a call back saying they had his equipment.

I want to thank @AirCanada for going above and beyond in locating the missing bags and gear and delivering to Halifax. My sympathies to those impacted by the storm and wishing everyone a peaceful, healthy and safe New Year.
