My family and I have worked with Kevin Magnuson and KO sports since 2006 after Kevin saw me play in the USHL Fall Classic for Waterloo. Kevin has helped guide me through the USHL, NCAA and NHL and all the good and bad that comes with each League. His experience as a former practicing attorney was really helpful in negotiating all three of my NHL contracts. Kevin and KO Sports were especially prepared for the salary arbitration hearing we had in 2015 with Nashville that ended with me eventually earning an awesome, life changing 5-year deal.
