There is about to be a new hockey agent, and there is nothing typical about his background. Darcy Tucker played 14 seasons in the NHL prior to making the announcement that he will be starting a new career representing those who have aspirations of performing at a professional level.
In an ESPN report, Pierre LeBrun says that Tucker retired and decided to become an agent at least partly because he wants to finally put his wife and three kids ahead of his career. Perhaps he should think about pursuing a different profession in that case. A 9-5 job guarantees at least a few hours a day with family. An agent’s job is anything but 9-5.
Tucker was drafted in the sixth round of the 1993 NHL Draft by the Montreal Canadiens. In his hockey career, he also played with the Tampa Bay Lightning, Toronto Maple Leafs, and Colorado Avalanche.
His new sports agency is called Turning Point Sports Management, and includes his former agent, Carlos Sosa in its management team.
