I just wanted to share my information. I know some players who played in the 3rd German league (the team ran out of money) and no one had an agent. I know there are some journeyman in these leagues (mostly Canadians) who finance their lives with hockey and these players have agents. I don't know the situation in Switzerland but I assume it's comparable with Germany. He (the original poster) is a rookie heading into his first full season with the pros and I've never heared of a rookie in having an agent in these minor leagues. I think his teammates could make fun of him because he's like arrogant having an agent.
But I repeat it: I don't know the exact situation down there.
I know the structure of German minor leagues and I just wanted to add some information.
But where did I say that I play (pro) hockey?
I just shared the information I received from former pro hockey players and I've always said that my information originate from hockey players and are not caused of my own experience. But I guess that you know everything about European minors, especially about their economic activities...., don't you?
I'm sorry for my bad English
