BOSTON — The NHL has agreed to pay an undisclosed sum to a former team-mate of an owner who was involved in an alleged bribery scandal that led to the dismissal of former general manager Bob Murray, the league announced Wednesday.
The NHLPA is seeking an undisclosed amount for the former assistant general manager who was allegedly involved in the bribery investigation.
The deal is contingent on Murray accepting a $300,000 settlement, according to a league statement.
The statement did not identify the former NHL assistant general coach.
The league has been working with the NHL to get the former team manager and the assistant general in a position to cooperate with the investigation.
The settlement was announced as part of a settlement with the league, the union representing Murray’s former assistants, the NHL Players’ Association and former commissioner Gary Bettman.
The settlement also includes a $25,000 fine for each former assistant manager.
