Atlantic Hockey commissioner Bob DeGregorio has signed a three-year contract extension to lead the league through 2013.
“We are extremely fortunate and please to continue to have him lead this league,” Atlantic Hockey executive committee chair Bill Bellerose said in a news release. “He has guided us through two expansions and continues to improve the visibility of Atlantic Hockey both regionally and nationally.â€
DeGregorio has led the league since it began as a nine-team group in the 2003-04 season.
Quinnipiac left for ECAC Hockey in 2005. A year later, Air Force moved from the CHA and RIT moved to the Division I level, making Atlantic Hockey a 10-team league.
Niagara and Robert Morris will join next season, making a 12-team conference.
