BREAKING: Auston Matthews Involved in Kyle Dubas Investigation by NHLPA

Published May 26, 2023 at 10:53

The bond shared between Kyle Dubas and Auston Matthews, both on and off the ice, has been quite positive. However, recent developments have raised some concerns regarding the legality of their connection. The NHL Players' Association (NHLPA) has taken the initiative to launch an investigation into Dubas, suspecting that there may be hidden motives behind his dealings with Matthews. If proven guilty, Dubas could face severe consequences, including being banned from the NHL and potential legal repercussions.

The NHLPA is closely examining Dubas due to the fact that both he and Matthews have agents who are associated with the same firm. According to the certified agent regulations of the association, agents are explicitly prohibited from representing NHL club officers or employees. While Matthews' agent, Judd Moldaver, does not fall under NHLPA jurisdiction as his primary focus is on representing golfers, the situation still raises significant concerns.

Several NHL certified agents from rival agencies have expressed their straightforward views on the matter. One long-time agent, preferring to remain anonymous as he isn't authorized to speak on behalf of his firm, stated,

"This is clearly against the regulations. It is an unwritten, well-understood practice that your colleague from across the hall doesn't work for the other side. I urge the NHLPA to launch an investigation and reach their own conclusion."

If Dubas is found guilty, this situation is likely to lead to legal disputes, terminations, and potential legal actions. However, it is important to take into account Dubas' defense as well. His agent, Chris Armstrong, works in a separate department from Moldaver, even though both are employed by Wasserman. Additionally, Dubas chose to hire Armstrong based on their longstanding friendship. While it seems unlikely that any violations occurred, we cannot entirely dismiss the possibility.

The NHLPA will conduct a thorough investigation to determine whether Dubas had any ulterior motives in his interactions with Matthews during their time in Toronto. It is crucial to allow the investigation to proceed, as we await the outcome to see if Dubas can present a compelling case to prove his innocence.
