Jay-Z has done a lot of incredible things throughout the course of his career. But can he really make hockey—yes, hockey!—popular again? We might get the chance to find out soon.
According to the New York Post's Page Six, Hov is reportedly interested in signing NHL prospect Seth Jones—the son of former NBA player Popeye Jones and the projected No. 1 pick in the 2013 NHL Draft—to Roc Nation Sports. The younger Jones is already signed to CAA, the company that partnered with Roc Nation earlier this month, and it's believed that Jones also might be interested in getting down with the Roc.
"When Seth comes to the NHL Draft [in Newark, NJ] in June, his family, agents at CAA, and Roc Nation are going to have a powwow to see if he'll sign with them," a source told the Post.
We'll have to wait until June to see if it actually happens. But if Jay does ink Jones to a deal, it'd benefit Jones, Jay, and the NHL. We can already see Hov and Beyonce chilling rinkside next winter in matching furs.
Yo, Seth: Find out where you have to sign and do it!
