A group of powerful NHL agents are working behind the scenes to promote former Maple Leaf Jeff Jackson for a major job with the NHL Players’ Association, either as its in-house lawyer or even as a potential new executive director.
To them, Jackson is an ideal candidate because he’s a former NHLer, a former assistant general manager with the Maple Leafs, a lawyer and someone who already understands the collective bargaining agreement.
“He’d be perfect for the PA,” a source told the Star on condition that his name not be used. “He knows the salary cap as well as anybody.”
