They do a great job of getting the players what they want. If you want to work with a certain company or reach out and see if there’s interest, David Ludwig does a good job and can make it happen.

Whenever I need help, they are always there to talk me through the issue, as it is usually stuff that is new to me in my professional career. The KO Sports staff gives me great advice and I’ve been very happy with all of the work they have done on my behalf.

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.
