|Report: Fehr to become head of NHLPA||08.25.10 at 7:18 pm ET|
According to a report from Liz Mullen of the Sports Business Journal, former MLBPA executive Donald Fehr is set to take on the same role with the NHL 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.
