The NHLPA had officially announced on Friday that they have formed a search committee to start finding the successor to 73-year old Executive Director Donald Fehr.

“The many players who have played in the NHL over the last eleven years greatly appreciate the significant accomplishments under the leadership of Don Fehr. Don joined the NHLPA after a long and successful career as Executive Director of the MLBPA and quickly stabilized the union following a very difficult period. He led the NHLPA through the owners’ 2012-13 lockout and negotiated a new CBA that created a defined benefit pension plan which will greatly benefit players for generations to come.” the selection committee said as part of a released statement.
