NHL ALUMS TO DIVIDE UP $1M IN RESTITUTION FROM THE EAGLE
Published July 17, 1998
About 1,400 Alan Eagleson-era NHL players will divide up a $1M fund taken from the former NHLPA founder, according to Brad Honywill of the TORONTO SUN. A trustee overseeing the distribution of $1M that Eagleson had to pay in restitution after a plea-bargaining agreement in a fraud case has announced that all players who were members of the NHLPA from '76-91 are "entitled to share equally in the recovered money." Split among 1,400 eligible players, the restitution "shrinks" to about $700 each (TORONTO SUN, 7/17). The maximum a player could receive is $1,400 and the minimum is $100 (Randy Starkman, TORONTO STAR, 7/17).
