Caps star Alexander Ovechkin fires veteran agent Don Meehan

Publish date:

The Russian player fired the head of Newport Sports Management during a meeting last week, Meehan told The Canadian Press on Wednesday. "I'm disappointed but I wish him well," said Meehan.

Ovechkin was not immediately available for comment.

It's believed Ovechkin's mother will be taking over her son's affairs. The 21-year-old is signed to his entry-level contract through next season.

Meehan's long list of clients includes Jarome Iginla, Nicklas Lidstrom, Jose Theodore, Michael Peca, Trevor Linden and Dion Phaneuf.
