Top Not-So-Secret Agents

Sports Business Journal has pronounced the top 20 most influential sports agents working today and includes the ubiquitous Don Meehan in 13th spot—

Meehan, who started representing hockey players nearly 30 years ago, has dominated the NHL agent business for years. His Ontario-based firm represents more than 110 NHL players, including Nicklas Lidstrom, Jarome Iginla, Chris Pronger, Wade Redden, Henrik Lundqvist and Dion Phaneuf. This year, Meehan’s Newport Sports represented nine first-round draft selections, including five of the first six players taken. He also represented No. 1 overall pick Steven Stamkos. Meehan did, however, suffer a loss in the last two years, when superstar Alex Ovechkin fired him in late 2006.

Check out the rest of the list.
