Alan Eagleson, the founder of the National Hockey League Players' Association (NHLPA) and a former player-agent, is selling 98 items of his personal hockey memorabilia through an internet auction that starts today.
Eagleson was once one of the most powerful men in professional hockey ... that is, until he got into trouble. In 1998, Eagleson was convicted of fraud and the embezzlement of hundreds of thousands of dollars earmarked for the pension fund of NHL players. He served six months in prison, only one third of his sentence. He was also disbarred, stripped of his Order of Canada and lost his spot in the Hockey Hall of Fame.
I guess he needs some money now ...
