USA Hockey President Ron DeGregorio said in a statement: “His leadership has been a significant factor in the continued progress we’ve made overall, and we’re fortunate to have him guiding USA Hockey.”
Ogrean played a critical role in forging a partnership with the NHL three years ago that sees the league contribute $8 million annually to the USA Hockey Foundation, which supports national hockey programs and initiatives. He also led the creation of the American Development Model, an initiative to assist hockey associations with the development of young players. USA Hockey’s player membership has grown from 442,077 in 2005 to 510,279 today.
