Kukla's Korner Hockey

The Tweeting Player Agent

from Greg Wyshynski of PuckDaddy,

It’s become a running joke in hockey circles: Allan Walsh, player agent for Octagon Hockey, pimping his players’ exploits on Twitter with a familiar adjective before their names:

“‘Client’ Jaro Halak with the most epic Mtl goaltending performance since Patrick Roy in 86 and Ken Dryden in 71. Good company!”

(Walsh, of course, is infamous for his opinionated use of social media, like when Martin Havlat split with the Chicago Blackhawks last summer.)

Walsh has had plenty to tweet about in the 2010 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Montreal Canadiens goalie Client Jaroslav Halak has been one of the League’s postseason MVPs, backstopping the Habs to an enormous first-round upset of the Washington Capitals and continuing his mastery in the second round.
