League Statement Regarding St. John's Edge Playoff Roster

The National Basketball League of Canada announced via the transaction page on April 25th that the player exemption granted to the St. John's Edge has been rescinded removing Kyle Johnson from the active playoff roster.

On April 17th, prior to the start of the second round playoff series between the St. John's Edge and KW Titans, the league granted an emergency player exemption to the Edge based on the fact the team had multiple players with questionable playing status as a result of injuries. As the team was at risk of having less than the league minimum (8) required numbers of players to field a team, the request was supported and the emergency exemption was granted.

After the first two games of the series with the Titans, the Edge been able to dress enough players to field a team and not be at risk of the league minimum making the player exemption no longer necessary.
