The Hockey East Association has announced its official online presence, located at http://www.hockeyeastonline.com. The Web site, which debuted on Monday, is still under development, but currently carries weekly press releases, standings and statistics.
“Our audience wants information on Hockey East with greater speed and convenience than we’ve been able to provide,” said commissioner Joe Bertagna. “This will allow us to be more responsive to our fans and opens doors to even greater use of today’s technology in the future.”
Over the next few weeks, graphical enhancements and new areas such as league and tournament histories will be added. Plans are under way to develop Internet broadcasts of Hockey East games, and to provide an interactive forum for college hockey fans.
“Our long-term goal is to develop the finest college hockey site on the Internet,” said Dan Parkhurst of Global Solutions Providers, developers of the website.
