Donald Fehr statement on the passing of Michael Weiner
TORONTO -- Statement from NHLPA executive director and former MLBPA executive director Donald Fehr:
"My wife Stephanie and I are enormously saddened to learn of Mike Weiner's passing today, and our thoughts go out to Diane and their three daughters.
"Mike was an extraordinary individual in so many ways: as a loving husband and father, as an exceptional union leader and lawyer, and as a great friend to so many. He was an indispensable part of the MLBPA staff for more than two decades, and was the right man to lead the union.
"This is a great loss, for his family, for his friends, for the players, and for everyone who crossed his path."
