Biographical Info

A persistent checking forward, Jeff Jackson was a workhorse for his four NHL teams. Drafted by the Maple Leafs after getting eight points in seven games during Canada’s 1985 World Junior Championship, he worked in the minors before getting a regular spot in the 1986-1987. However, he was traded to the Rangers as the season wound to a close. Playing only nine games in Manhattan, he was then traded to the Nordiques in the off-season. Even though Quebec was a bottom-dweller for most of his three-and-a-half seasons there, it was in Quebec that Jackson played some of his finest hockey. After he was traded to the Blackhawks, he was often relegated to the minors due to injuries. It was then that Jackson felt a career change was in order. Jackson practiced law for many years, acting for many performers and athletes in the entertainment and sport industries. In 2006, Jackson became Director of Hockey Administration for the Toronto Maple Leafs and subsequently was named the Assistant General Manager and Director of Hockey Operations. In 2012, Jackson joined the Orr Hockey Group where he works as agent for several prominent NHL players.
