Jeff Jackson, the Executive Vice President of Wasserman Hockey, and the agent for NHL superstar Connor McDavid, joins Craig on this week's Full 60. Jackson, who also represents Aaron Ekblad, Connor Brown and Alex Debrincat, discusses how he got into the agent business, originally working for Bobby Orr and Rick Curran. Jackson who went to University after his playing career with Quebec and Toronto was finished, became a lawyer, which paved the way for him to work in the NHL Office, and in the front office for the Toronto Maple Leafs.
