About CAA Hockey

Committed to our clients' success.

CAA Hockey is a full-service agency that sees the big picture. Our outstanding track record negotiating contracts on behalf of the game's most exciting talent is matched by our expertise and uniquely powerful resources in endorsements, player development, philanthropy, event management, and social media strategy.

We recognize that lasting professional, financial and personal success depends on the strength of our client relationships. We are closely connected with all of our players and their families to understand their individual ambitions both on and off the ice, and develop the right strategies to realize them. And as part of CAA, the world's leading entertainment and sports agency, we are positioned to provide our clients meaningful connections and opportunities beyond traditional athlete representation.
 

What We Do

A 360-degree approach.

Contract Negotiation

Forbes named CAA Hockey "the most valuable hockey practice in the world." We take great pride in representing the most prestigious talent in the game, and our ability to advocate for them at the negotiating table is unsurpassed.

Off the Ice

Our clients benefit from both the experience and industry reputation of the CAA Hockey team, and the entire CAA organization. We have formidable connections with NHL and team sponsors across all markets, and have solidified strong relationships with industry-leading brands and executives. CAA’s unparalleled resources help us not only create opportunities for our hockey clients in endorsements, pop culture, philanthropy, broadcasting, and beyond, but also provide a level of service for all off-ice matters that is second to none.

Player Development

We have staff dedicated to working with our younger players and their families, both as advisors and agents, to implement individual development strategies. Our approach is holistic: we advise and assist with training, skills development, nutrition and mental preparation, and we educate families on their options and the best path to success, no matter the desired outcome.

The cornerstones of our development group are the annual CAA Hockey Summer Camps, where invited players experience an intense and in-depth week of on- and off-ice training that focuses on all aspects of their development and preparation. They leave with new friendships and a sharpened hockey sense, ready to take on the upcoming season.
