Official announcement of the new job

The official announcmenet of Mathieu's new job from the NHLPA is posted on the associations website: NHLPA.com

Says Mathieu:
"Now that my playing career is over, I’m very excited to have the opportunity to continue to work on behalf of the players. I plan on drawing from my own understanding of the NHLPA and the game to help ensure that the players are educated on all matters relating to the Association and the Collective Bargaining Agreement.”

I guess that's his official retirement announcement, too.

I'm biased of course, but I think this is a very smart appointment. Mathieu knows his stuff about the league, and is respected by his player colleagues.
