***NHLPA Appoints Getzlaf To Search Committee***

THE TELETYPE:

The NHLPA announced that Ryan Getzlaf will join Jamie Langenbrunner, Brian Rafalski, Brian Rolston and Mathieu Schneider on a special committee to find a new Executive Director.  The Ducks alternate captain will be the youngest member of a mostly American group that will work with former MLBPA Executive Director Donald Fehr in its search efforts.

The Players' Association removed former Executive Director Paul Kelly in August and have been looking for a stable appointee ever since.  The current collective bargaining agreement will expire at the end of the 2010-11 season or a year later at the Association's option.
