College Hockey names Ewell interim exec. director
The Hockey Commissioners Association announced that Nate Ewell has been appointed interim Executive Director of College Hockey, Inc.
The Hockey Commissioners Association (HCA) today announced that Nate Ewell has been appointed to the position of interim Executive Director of College Hockey, Inc. (CHI).

"We are extremely pleased to announce Nate's promotion to his new position knowing that he is an experienced professional who is highly regarded at both the pro and collegiate levels of hockey," HCA President Steve Hagwell said. "CHI will be well served by his expertise in the media, communications, marketing and promotional creativity."

Prior to joining the staff of College Hockey Inc. in January, 2011, Ewell served as the Vice President of Communications for the NHL's Washington Capitals. In eight seasons with the club, he created a comprehensive media strategy for League MVP Alex Ovechkin, established a program for accreditation of bloggers that became a model for other sports franchises, and led a staff that captured four consecutive Dick Dillman Awards, as the top media relations group in the Eastern Conference.

A 1996 graduate of Princeton University, where he was the Sports Editor of the campus newspaper, Ewell went on to become the Assistant Sports Information Director at Michigan State University. There, he served as the principal media contact for the MSU men's hockey program. CHI is a non-profit corporation that operates under the auspices of the HCA and serves as the educational, promotional and marketing arm of college hockey.

Quote of the Day

I kept refreshing the page on the NHL website after the second round and I was shocked he lasted that long. I'm sure the Coyotes were pretty happy to get him. He's such a good player and he plays big in big games.
