I’m sure that you’ve noticed the explosion of Warrior gear that has been taking over the league at an unprecedented pace. Having the likes of Mark Sheifele and Tyler Myers on board as well as having sticks in the hands of Leon Draisaitl in Edmonton and Johnny Gaudreau & Matt Tkachuk in Calgary have been amazing additions of A-list talent over the past few months.
I was recently connected with John Kirk – Pro Services Rep extraordinaire to get some insights as to how he goes about making such huge gains in such a short period of time. Kirky takes care of the Jets, Flames, Oilers, Wild, Blues and Lightning officially, but he’s been at it so long and has so many great relationships with pro’s that he often takes calls from players from across the league. Going into the call, of course I wanted to know all of the inside scoop on what’s happening in the dressing rooms & who would be next to sign on – but I was also curious about the process of both signing new plays and keeping current ones satisfied and performing their best.
