National Hockey League Collective Bargaining Agreement -1993-2004
Article 6 
NHLPA Agent Certification


6.1. Exclusive Representation.  The NHL and the Clubs recognize
that the NHLPA regulates the conduct of agents who represent
players in individual contract negotiations with Clubs.  The NHL
and the Clubs agree that the Clubs are prohibited from engaging
in individual contract negotiations with any agent who is not
designated by the NHLPA as being duly certified ("Certified
Agent") by the NHLPA in accordance with its role as exclusive
bargaining agent for NHL players.  The NHLPA shall publish and
provide to the NHL and the Clubs a list of agents who are
currently certified in accordance with its Agent Certification
Program and, for each player, the name of the certified agent, if
any.  The NHLPA shall notify the NHL and the Clubs, by way of
publishing and providing them with a comprehensive updated list,
setting forth any deletions or additions thereto.

6.2. Players Contracts.  No Club shall enter into a Player
Contract with any player and the NHL shall not register or
approve any Player Contract unless such player:  (i) was
represented in the negotiations by a Certified Agent as
designated by the NHLPA under Section 6.1; or (ii) if Player has
no Certified Agent, acts on his own behalf in negotiating such
Player Contract.

6.3. Indemnification.  The NHLPA shall indemnify the NHL and any
of its Clubs against and save it harmless from any claim made or
judgment incurred on account of its or their refusal to negotiate
with an agent or representative not certified by the NHLPA in
accordance with the NHLPA's Agent Certification Program.

6.4. No Amendment.  In the event the NHLPA wishes to make a
material change to the Agent Certification Program, the NHLPA
shall notify the League at least 60 days before such change is to
take effect and shall afford the League a reasonable period of
time prior to the implementation thereof for the purpose of
conferring regarding any such changes.
