The National Hockey League Players' Association (NHLPA) has set its sights on the former Leafs figure, Kyle Dubas. A report from Daily Faceoff's Fank Seravalli suggests that the Association has instigated a probe, inspecting for possible violations concerning conflicts of interest.

Dubas's Agency Connection and Potential Conflict

Dubas's representation comes from Chris Armstrong, an agent from Wasserman Sports. This agency also houses agent Judd Moldaver, who is well-known for representing Leafs' standout player, Auston Matthews. The NHLPA's primary concern revolves around the potential conflict arising from Matthews and Dubas being catered to by the same agency.
The main issue at hand questions the appropriateness of two individuals from the same agency servicing the same organization. However, as Armstrong is not a certified NHL agent, he cannot be subjected to any disciplinary action. Despite this, the NHLPA is keen to delve into the connections between the two parties.

Wasserman Sports: A Powerhouse in the NHL Talent Sphere

Wasserman Sports holds its position firmly as the third most significant agency in terms of NHL talent. It boasts a talent pool comprising 71 registered NHLers, which includes highly recognized names such as Auston Matthews, Connor McDavid, and Aaron Ekblad.

What Could be the Outcome?

Frank Seravalli questions:
"The question for the NHLPA to determine: Are agents working for the same agency, but in a different division or arm of the firm, also prohibited from representing hockey executives on the other side of the table?" Thus, the outcome may significantly affect the future workings of the industry.

The final resolution of this investigation remains uncertain. Regardless, the NHLPA assures they are looking into the situation comprehensively and carefully to ensure that no stone is left unturned.
