Lagardere Expands Business To Hockey, Signing Coyotes' Shane Doan
Lagardere Unlimited has expanded its athlete representation practice to hockey, announcing over the weekend that MLB player agent Terry Bross has been certified by the NHLPA and is now representing Coyotes RW Shane Doan, who became a free agent yesterday. Doan was formerly represented by J.P. Barry of CAA Sports. Bross works at the former Gaylord Sports, which is based in Scottsdale, Ariz., and was acquired by Lagardere earlier this year. Lagardere represents hundreds of athletes in multiple sports, but Doan is the firm’s first hockey player client.
Meanwhile, Pat Brisson of CAA Sports has signed G Martin Brodeur, who became a free agent yesterday.
