  • Michael Brind’Amour (Saint-Alphonse-Rodriguez, Que.);

All four directors elected on Saturday were elected to two-year terms.

“It’s an honour to be working with such a talented and dedicated group of volunteers who make up Hockey Canada’s board of directors,” said Drago at the close of the 2016 Winter Congress and Annual Meeting in Montreal. “We share the passion that Hockey Canada’s employees and membership have of growing the game and celebrating success at all levels. I feel it’s a true privilege to be able to lead this as board chair for another two-year term.”

Hockey Canada’s Winter Congress and Annual Meeting brought together the governing body’s board of directors and partners, along with representation from all 13 member associations, and from councils that oversee female hockey, junior hockey, minor hockey, senior hockey and hockey development.

Hockey Canada’s next annual meeting will be held on Nov. 18, 2017, in Ottawa.
