NEW YORK (AP) -Outgoing baseball union head Donald Fehr has agreed to assist the NHL Players' Association in its search for an executive director.
The hockey union said Thursday that Fehr will work with two committees. In addition to the search committee, a second panel will review the union's constitution.
Fehr has been executive director of the Major League Baseball Players Association since 1983. He announced retirement plans in June. The baseball union's executive board is to approve union general counsel Michael Weiner to succeed him next month.
