A $10 Million NHLPA Secret Ballot

From Rick Westhead at the Toronto Star,

The NHL Players’ Association has offered prospective chief Paul Kelly a five-year, $10 million contract, according to secret ballots that were sent out by the union late yesterday.

The ballots were sent by the union to the NHL’s 30 team player representatives, who will consult with teammates over the next week or so.  The ballots included a term sheet that outlined Kelly’s compensation package. 

The last time the NHLPA held a secret ballot vote it was over former executive director Ted Saskin’s future. Those ballots were returned to the union.

This time around, the ballots will be returned to a Toronto law firm.  Kelly needs the endorsement of 16 of the 30 player reps to be hired.
