Chances are if you’re on Twitter you’ve seen the work of agent Allan Walsh.
While the NHLPA does their own PR work rallying support of the players, Walsh has been more than aggressive in pushing the buttons of the NHL’s owners and drawing the fire of fans and media alike.
What you may not know about him, however, is he used to be the guy who put away violent criminals in Los Angeles. Dave Feschuk of the Toronto Star has the fascinating story about Walsh spending six years prosecuting hardcore gang criminals and the gut-wrenching trial that made him decide to change careers.
