The NHLPA has announced that it has voted to set up a search committee to find a future replacement for CEO Don Fer.
The board includes NHL players Ian Cole, Justin Folk, Sam Gagner, Zach Hyman, Kyle Okpos, Nate Schmidt and Kevin Shattenkerk.
Fer has been in office since 2010. In 2012, he became the first director to be involved in shutting down two sports after doing so with MLB during the 1994-95 strike. Fer began his career at MLBPA in 1985 and retired in 2009.
NHLPA news comes months after a report of sexual violence by Kyle Beach reveals that Fer did nothing with the details of the incidents.
“Many players who have played in the NHL over the last eleven years greatly appreciate the significant achievements under Don Fer. Don joined the NHLPA after a long and successful career as the executive director of the MLBPA and quickly stabilized the union after a very difficult period, ”the PA statement said.
Fer will continue to perform his role throughout the search. The committee will provide information in late July.
