Donald Fehr to attend tonight’s charity game in Chicago

5 Comments

Since he’s not negotiating with Gary Bettman at the moment, some might wonder what exactly Donald Fehr is up to.

The NHLPA head plans on attending a charitable event that doubles as a virtual reunion of the 2010 Chicago Blackhawks Cup-winning team tonight, according to RDS’ Renaud P. Lavoie.

Lavoie reports that Fehr is expected to meet with players and that it’s also anticipated that he’ll attend Minnesota’s own charity-friendly game on Monday to do the same.

(That event will represent a chance to see Zach Parise and Ryan Suter join forces in something more interesting than a press conference.)

For those who joke* that Fehr should be locked in a room with Gary Bettman until the two hash out an agreement, this probably isn’t a very satisfying development.

At least he’s not just eating popcorn and watching “Frankenweenie” on Friday night, though.

* – Assuming they’re joking, of course …
