NHLPA Holds Conference Call to Discuss Kelly Firing

The NHLPA held a 2 1/2 hour conference call to discuss the firing of Paul Kelly. There were no decisions made on the call but another call is scheduled for October 4. Darren Dreger of TSN.ca has more details

A source said the call wasn’t contentious at all and the group talked about the procedure and events leading up to Paul Kelly’s firing and was asked to take the discussion back to their teammates for further analysis.

No NHLPA staff, advisory board members or even ombudsman Buzz Hargrove were allowed to participate in the 2 1/2 hour meeting.

Another conference call will be held on October 4, at which point the executive board will recommend how to handle Kelly’s firing.

The decision on October 4 will go a long way in deciding how quickly we can put this whole fiasco behind us. If the NHLPA decides they won’t honor Kelly’s contract, he is expected to quickly challenge that decision with legal action.
