College Hockey:
Ice Hockey Committee Adds 2 Members

In a move that has long been talked about, the Men’s Division I Ice Hockey Committee has officially increased the number of members from four to six.

Wayne Dean, associate athletic director at Yale, will represent the ECAC on the committee, and Frank Serratore, head coach at Air Force, will be the at-large
member of the committee and represent College Hockey America.

The committee is currently comprised of chairman Jack McDonald, athletic director at Quinnipiac; Ron Grahame, associate athletic director at Denver; Ian Macaw, athletic director of Northeastern; and Buddy Powers, head coach at Bowling Green.

All conferences that have an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament receive one seat on the committee. The CCHA, ECAC, Hockey East, MAAC and WCHA all have one seat, while the sixth seat is an at-large seat, which can be filled by any

The stated preference, however, was to try and fill the at-large position with someone from the CHA, now that former chair Bill Wilkinson, the head coach at Wayne State, had his term expire. With the addition of Dean and Serratore, the committee will indeed have representation of all six major Division I conferences.
