Never a dull moment at NHLPA: Hall of Famer Mike Gartner resigns

The Hockey Hall of Famer began a conference call with the players' executive board with his announcement that he was leaving as the NHLPA's director of hockey affairs, ending eight years of work at the union. "This decision was made with careful thought and consideration and has been contemplated over an extended period of time," Gartner said in a statement.

"I leave with great reservation due to my longstanding involvement with the Players' Association and in light of the current circumstances affecting the union. I am sincerely troubled by the recent revelations and am hopeful that the Association can move forward and be restored to a level of respect worthy of its members."
