Patrick Maroon’s New Agent Still Shopping His Client

from Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,

Patrick Maroon, the free-agent forward from Oakville in south St. Louis County, changed agents a few days ago and that may be delaying his decision on a new team — if only for a few days — while Maroon's new representative shops around for new offers.

Maroon had been represented by St. Louis-based agent Allain Roy, but has switched to Minneapolis-based Ben Hankinson. Roy could not be reached for comment on the split. But frequently in such situations, regardless of the sport, it's simply a matter of the player not being happy with the offers or interest on the open market.

Most of the action in NHL free agency takes place within a couple of days of the opening of the free-agent signing period, which was July 1 this year. Maroon, 30, is at the age where he probably has one more good contract left in his career.
