Details Emerge From Yesterday’s NHLPA Meeting

from Frank Seravalli of the Daily Faceoff,

The question and answer session with NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr was expected to be the main event. Agents wanted answers to tough questions about the Arizona Coyotes’ arena fiasco, projected revenues, the Kyle Beach investigation – and most importantly, the 73-year-old Fehr’s future at the helm.

One agent even purportedly went as far as sending a manifesto to Fehr and the NHLPA ahead of the meeting to advise them of questions he’d like answered.

Yet, Wednesday’s meeting was drama free.

Because the main event never happened.

According to agents in the room, Fehr never fielded questions, like he has after each of the meetings during his 11-year tenure – as each executive director did that came before him, too.

Agents were instead told that Fehr was unavailable for questions and the meeting was abruptly adjourned.

That was the latest in a series of signals indicating the significant pressure Fehr is facing, from multiple constituencies now, to get moving on an exit strategy.
