MVP Group Agency is proud to announce its partnership with the 2018 Montreal Canadiens’ first round pick, Jesperi Kotkaniemi, as well as his Chicago-based agent, ACME World Sports. MVP Group Agency’s mandate is to identify and develop community engagements and commercial opportunities between Jesperi and Canadian companies. Perseverance, commitment and respect are the core values for the rookie’s future projects.
With 79 games played in his first season in the NHL, Jesperi is one of the few Canadiens’ players to earn a permanent spot on the team at 18 years old. In February, he set a new franchise record by becoming the first player to score goals in three straight games before the age of 19. With his undeniable talent, engaging and charming personality, Jesperi has everything to leave his mark in the NHL and become Quebec hockey fan favorite!
Simon Arsenault, Founding President of MVP Group Agency and ACME World Sports, are very optimistic about the announcement of this partnership with Jesperi:
“We are extremely happy about this partnership with ACME World Sports by adding Jesperi to our team. He is a talented and inspiring young man with a promising future in the NHL. We are convinced that he will take his role seriously in the Quebec sports landscape and that he will be committed to give back to the community” said Simon Arsenault.
Joe Pinter, a partner and NHLPA certified agent at ACME World Sports adds, “We have been searching for a strategic partner based in Montreal for the benefit of Jesperi, and we believe we found a great match with Simon and MVP. We were impressed with their solid track record in sports marketing and their reputation throughout the Quebec market. We are excited to get to work with them.”
