Report: Fehr to become head of NHLPA

According to a report from Liz Mullen of the Sports Business Journal [1], former MLBPA executive Donald Fehr is set to take on the same role with the NHL [2] player’s association.

Fehr had served the NHLPA as an advisor last year after leaving the MLBPA following 13 years as its director. The 62-year-old is known for once netting players $280 million due to owners’ collusion and for leading the players association during the baseball strike of 1994-95.

Though the report has not been confirmed by Fehr or the NHLPA, Mullen writes that other people in contention for the job have been notified that the search is done.
