TORONTO (November 12, 2009) – The National Hockey League Players’ Association (NHLPA) today announced that the NHLPA Executive Board has voted to establish two committees.  The first committee will review the NHLPA’s constitution.  The second committee will begin the search process for a new Executive Director.

The Executive Board, which is comprised of one Player Representative from each of the 30 NHL clubs, has appointed four NHLPA members to serve on the Constitution Committee: Steve Montador of the Buffalo Sabres, Dominic Moore of the Florida Panthers, Tim Thomas of the Boston Bruins, and Marty Turco of the Dallas Stars.  The Constitution Committee will review the terms and operation of the NHLPA constitution, and will report its recommendations back to the Executive Board.

A second committee will initiate the search process for a new NHLPA Executive Director.  This Search Committee will develop and recommend appropriate criteria for the candidate search and, after consultation with the Executive Board, initiate the search process.  The Search Committee will consist of up to five NHLPA members to be appointed by the Executive Board. The selection process is underway and the committee members will be named shortly.

After discussions with the NHLPA Executive Board, outgoing MLBPA Executive Director, Donald Fehr, offered to work with members of the Constitution and Search Committees.  The Executive Board voted without objection to authorize the committees to work with Mr. Fehr, who has served as MLBPA Executive Director since December 1983.

Both committees will work concurrently with and have access to information from the recently formed NHLPA Review Committee.
