Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Darren Dreger of TSN,
Paul Kelly has been fired as executive director of the National Hockey League players association.
The decision was made by the NHLPA’s executive board, made up of 30 NHL player representatives following several hours of meetings in Chicago.
Kelly spent much of Sunday night waiting in a corridor outside the boardroom while the executive board deliberated, twice inviting interim ombudsman, Buzz Hargrove in to the discussions before a final vote and decision was made.
Kelly was invited back into the board meeting along with general counsel Ian Penny where he learned his fate.
