When Bryan Berard retired in 2009, he was shocked to learn that the nest egg he built over a 10-year NHL career was gone.He’d been duped out of $3 million. He was angry, not only at the two men eventually convicted for squandering his money, but at himself for letting it all happen. Berard was one of a number of former NHL players defrauded by Phil Kenner and Tommy Constantine, who were convicted in the U.S. last summer on charges of wire fraud, conspiracy and money laundering. Living more modestly these days, the 39-year-old former defenceman is trying to make sure other players don’t make the same mistakes. In his role as director of sports and entertainment for Whale Rock Point Partners, a financial consulting firm, Berard doesn’t offer financial advice but steers players in that direction.
