Former player Eric Lindros resigns from position as NHLPA ombudsman

TORONTO - Eric Lindros has resigned from his position as ombudsman of the National Hockey League Players' Association.

The NHLPA confirmed his departure Tuesday but offered no comment on why he left.

Lindros accepted the role in November 2007 as the union remade itself after the firing of former executive director Ted Saskin.

The position was created as part of the rewritten NHLPA constitution to resolve any complaints by members and/or staff of the union, reporting directly to the executive board.

Current NHLPA head Paul Kelly was hired after the ombudsman position was created.
