Siskinds LLP would like to congratulate not only Nazem Kadri and his family on his new contract, but also our very own Brian MacDonald. As widely reported yesterday, Nazem signed a six-year, $27 million contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs. In addition to being the COO of Siskinds LLP, Brian is the agent for Kadri through Siskinds Sports Management.
Brian MacDonald was the lead negotiator on behalf of the London Ontario native, who led the Leafs with 45 points (17 goals, 28 assists) in 76 games this season. The 25-year-old was due to become a restricted free agent after signing a one-year, $4.1 million contract last summer.
Kadri, who has been a Siskinds Sports Management client since the age of 15, was a first round, 7th overall draft selection of the Toronto Maple Leafs in 2009. “The Maple Leaf logo is all I’ve ever known and it’s all I’ve ever wanted to play for. For them to show this kind of commitment towards me, meant a lot.”
Siskinds Sports Management—a boutique sports agency representing a number of North American hockey players—is owned by Siskinds LLP.
