During free agency, we talk about players and teams, but players aren’t doing the negotiating, agents are. So who are the agents behind New York Islanders players?
Except that Lehner and Lee aren’t the ones actually negotiating deals. Their agents are.
It’s typically this time of year where we find out who represents these free agents. We know that Neil Sheehy from ICE Hockey represents Anders Lee (he also represents Nick Leddy).
So who represents the rest of the New York Islanders roster? Here’s the list of current players, their agents, and who those agents work for.
Who Are They?
If you want to get a sense of how many hockey agents there are, head over to the NHLPA’s certified agent page to see the sheer number of agents. But that doesn’t list out what agent represents what player.
So what about the rest of the team? Who else represents current New York Islanders players?
Patrick Morris of Newport Sports (the top-ranked agency with $1.8 billion in active contracts) has the biggest portfolio when it comes to New York Islanders players. He represents four Islanders players: Josh Bailey, Casey Cizikas, Matt Martin, and Cal Clutterbuck.
J.P. Barry of CAA Sports (the second-ranked agency) counts two New York Islanders players on his client list: Andrew Ladd and Mathew Barzal. Craig Oster of Newport also has two Islanders players on his list: Jordan Eberle and Robin Lehner.

I wanted to find out who represented Isles players, mainly because I had no idea and I was curious who was represented by who.
And if I was curious, maybe you would be too.
