Fate of Saskin to be discussed in Thursday NHLPA conference call

In March, Saskin was given a paid leave of absence, along with senior director Ken Kim, following allegations they read NHLPA players’ e-mails.

Lawyer Chris Paliare was subsequently retained as outside counsel to look into the situation. On Thursday, the board is expected to discuss those findings.
