Certified Agents


In order to minimize the risk of transmission of COVID-19 and to protect the health and safety of its employees, the NHLPA offices will be operating with significantly reduced staff. As a result of these safety measures, we will be suspending the processing of any application for Agent certification until further notice. If you have already filed your application you should expect a delay in receiving a determination on your application status. If, however, there is an urgent need for the processing of your application due to a Player’s immediate need for representation, the NHLPA will consider such requests on a case-by-case basis. Please contact us at agentapplication@nhlpa.com with any such request. We appreciate your patience during this period.

Only player agents certified by the National Hockey League Players' Association are permitted to represent players in their dealings with NHL clubs. The NHLPA regulates the conduct of player agents under its Regulations Governing Agent Certification. The Agent Regulations set out the various terms under which agent duties must be performed, and include standards of conduct with which agents must comply. The NHLPA has the power to suspend, restrict, or terminate the certification of any agent for violation of these Agent Regulations.

The Agent Regulations also set out the procedure by which certification may be granted. Prospective agents must submit an application form and related materials detailing their education, background, their current business and personal relationships, as well as previous business dealings. The applications are then thoroughly reviewed by NHLPA staff, which may make further inquiries or conduct investigations before any decision regarding an applicant's certification has been rendered.

A request to receive application materials must be made in writing, either by email, fax, or regular mail to:

Please include contact information your request for application materials, including your full name, home address, telephone number and email address.
