Donald Fehr says speculation of him becoming NHLPA executive director is premature

Former Major League Baseball Players’ Association executive director Donald Fehr shed no light Thursday on whether or not he’ll assume the same role with the NHL Players’ Association in the near future.

Fehr addressed a group of certified player agents in Toronto and told them it is far too premature to discuss whether he’ll take the job for which he appears to be the frontrunner.
