Let Dad handle it. Agents don’t like dealing with moms.
Do your son a favor and find him an advisor . Don't worry about what others say do it for your son .
What exactly does an advisor do?
I have his sc’s opinion along with his former coach who played nhl, and I was looking for opinions.
1) Start here: https://www.nhlpa.com/the-pa/certified-agents . If they are not on this website stay away
2) don't pay a thing
Every serious player needs people to advise them. But that doesn't mean giving a stranger thousands of dollars each season to hope something great will come of it. Just being a great player with a great organization should be good enough to get noticed and advance. The problem is that parents overrate their kid.
I know a player who's parents honestly thought he was on the D1 track, hired an advisor and for last couple years kept mentioning all he was doing for him. The result? The kid is now playing club in college.
Most advisors who charge money are for-profit business owners who try to get parents of B, B+ or even A- players to fork over money in the hopes they will be able to get them spots on teams filled with A/A+ players.
A lot of college coaches do not want to deal with advisers. We have been to Harvard and other collegiate run camps and they all say the same thing. No harm in listening to what they have to say but if he’s good enough, you should not have to pay.
I love everybody here saying don't pay, or that if you are good enough it's free. If you don't pay an advisor for services you are receiving and impermissible benefit and could negatively effect your college eligibility.
Oh mom...so many directions to go here. Do the things that got your hubby (or ex) in the first place. That should help the boy. Worked for Forrest Gump!
**** off. You must have a micro penis.
**** them... shove your virtual hockey stick up their ass and get them out of your way.
Take the path and not look for the ride
