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.

Philadelphia is where I started my NHL career and this is where I want to be so I am really happy. This definitely gives me a lot of confidence by the Flyers showing that they have confidence in me. I know they want to see me get better as a player and this is the place to do it.
