from Darren Dreger of TSN,
NHLPA executive director Paul Kelly, who has been on the job less than two years, is facing intense scrutiny according to union sources and his status may be challenged when the Players’ Association’s 30-member executive committee convenes Sunday and Monday in Chicago at a regularly scheduled meeting.
Sources tell TSN that NHLPA interim ombudsman, Buzz Hargrove, is expected to make a presentation to the committee identifying concerns within the association about Kelly’s leadership. No details have emerged about the nature of the concerns.
Sources say it’s possible the executive committee could vote to have Kelly removed and, in accordance with the NHLPA constitution, could do so without consent from the full membership of NHL players.
