It is our responsibility to create a relationship that transcends the sport and be involved with the player and their families at every stage of their career as well as lives.

Professional Services

A professional hockey career can be very exciting, but the financial aspects that come with it can be very complex. Professional athletes face tax issues and have legal responsibilities that most people do not encounter in their lives. Also, athletes can earn large sums of money over relatively short careers, making it imperative to invest and insure assets strategically. At Edge Sports Management, negotiating a contract is just the beginning of a wide array of services that we provide extending to all areas important to a professional athlete.
