Media Skills/ Social Media

Our media coaching and consulting services help our clients increase their value and public image through newspaper, radio and television interviews.  Social media has become a very important aspect of every athlete's career and image.  We assist our clients in understanding the power and potential in enhancing and maintaining a positive social media presence. We are involved in a multitude of projects to help enhance our clients' social media image and presence, as this part of the media world keeps growing in relevance, and endorsement opportunities arise.

We use our excellent knowledge of the market and player values to find the best situation for our clients to maximize their value and career longevity.

RSG Hockey's mentors can assist players with legal issues from endorsements and housing contracts to establishing charitable foundations or drafting prenuptial agreements. We also have over 13 years of experience in salary arbitration cases with NHL Clubs.
