|Report: NHLPA voting on Donald Fehr||09.09.10 at 5:32 pm ET|
According to Larry Brooks of the New York Post, the NHLPA executive board is in the process of voting former MLB head Donald Fehr in as its executive director. A tweet from Brooks says that player reps have until 5 p.m. on Saturday to submit their votes.
Fehr had reportedly been chosen for the position last month according to Liz Mullen of the Sports Business Journal, but earlier this week Bruins defenseman and player representative Mark Stuart said that a vote to put Fehr in charge had yet to take place.
Fehr, 62, served the NHLPA as an advisor last year after leaving the MLBPA following 13 years as its director. He made his name as baseball’s union head by getting players $280 million due to owners’ collusion and for leading the players association during the baseball strike of 1994-95.
