Pat Brisson has decided against pursuing the Penguins GM opening or a top executive position, TSN’s Bob McKenzie reports.
Brisson was the Penguins top choice for a top executive role to run the organization.
“Ron Burkle, Mario Lemieux and I have been friends for a very long time. We’ve been linked to each other for many years and have exchanged ideas on many fronts and the business of hockey especially. They reached out on possible candidates for the vacant GM job on Friday. As for me, I am happy with what I do at CAA and will continue on the path of representing players,” Brisson said in a released statement, per McKenzie.
Were Brisson to have come on board it would have been a major headache for Sidney Crosby as some feel hiring his agent could have led to him losing the room.
