Enforcer on Ice and at Negotiating Table
Jeff Z. Klein, New York Times (12/10/12)

Kevin Westgarth is well suited to be on the negotiating team for the N.H.L. Players' Association. He is a 6-foot-4 enforcer for the Los Angeles Kings, little used but with his name on the Stanley Cup. He also has a psychology degree from Princeton. And he has been present for almost every bargaining session since before the N.H.L. lockout began Sept. 16.

"I guess I have these things brimming at the top of my brain," Westgarth said Saturday during a phone interview in which he shared detailed explanations of pension benefits and contract term limits. "My wife is fed up with me talking about this."

Westgarth and several other players on the negotiating team spent the weekend filling in their fellow union members on what happened at last week's talks in New York, which ended with Commissioner Gary Bettman angrily rejecting the union’s offer and pulling the league’s offers off the table.
