It used to be that when a player decided to leave professional hockey in North America to play professionally in Europe, the player was doing so to ride out the end of his career. Playing in Europe now has become a viable way to begin a player’s professional career, and also invigorate the middle of a playerís career with an eye towards increasing his value back in North America. At Edge Sports Management, we realize that Europe can be an important tool in developing a player, and can also create leverage in North American negotiations. We have placed players in virtually every top European league including those in Russia, Switzerland, Finland, Germany, Austria, Italy, and Great Britain.
