Paul Kelly, College Hockey Inc. executive director, resigns
In a stunning move, Paul Kelly has resigned as the Executive Director of College Hockey Inc. late Monday afternoon.
"The HCA would like to thank Paul for his service to CHI and wish him the best in his future endeavors," HCA president and ECAC Hockey commissioner Steve Hagwell said in a statement.
The news is surprising in that Kelly, who was on the job since Nov. 2009, has been traveling around the country attending games. In fact, he was just at the Union-Princeton game on Friday.
The release from the anticipates discussions to chart a different course for the position, including the option of appointing an interim executive director.
Before coming to CHI, Kelly was head of the NHL Players Association.
