Hockey agent tycoon, Pat Brisson, added another key player to his client list, Tyson Barrie. Barrie, 29, recently signed a one-year, $3.75 million contract with the Edmonton Oilers earlier this offseason. Barrie is coming off the abbreviated NHL season, due to COVID-19, in which he collected 39 points, 5 goals and 34 assists for the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Canadian was a large component to the Leafs’ early success as he was paired on the top scoring line with all-star Auston Matthews and Mitchell Marner. He is projected to have another solid season with the Oilers and has caught the attention of media stations, including NBC Sports, as a candidate for a breakout performance.
Brisson and CAA Hockey represent a contracts which total a value of over $1 billion with an AAV of $178,714,166 and already represents two Oilers players: Caleb Jones and Olivier Rodrigue. Barrie was previously represented by Newport Sports Agency (also known as The Hockey Agency) when he had earned a deal for four years worth $22 million during his time as a player for the Colorado Avalanche. Newport Sports also represents talent such as New Jersey Devils’ P.K. Subban and former Maple Leafs’ teammate, John Tavares.
