IIHF apologizes to Crosby's agent - 05-20-10

Written by Seth Rorabaugh on .

Rene Fasel, president of the International Ice Hockey Federation, apologized to Pat Brisson, the agent for Sidney Crosby, a day after Szymon Szemberg, a communication director for the IIHF, ripped Crosby and other NHL stars who opted out of the World Championships which are currently being played in Germany in a story on the IIHF's Web site.

The post has since been taken down from the Web site.
