The United States Hockey League today announced the appointment of Bob Fallen as President and Commissioner.  Fallen follows Skip Prince who led the USHL for six momentous years during which the League experienced significant growth in business and hockey operations, along with achieving record numbers in player development.  Fallen is being formally introduced today during a media teleconference.

With professional experience spanning nearly three decades in sports marketing, publishing, sales, media relations, and management, Fallen assumed the League’s leadership position on June 1.  He is just the third commissioner for the USHL in the past 20 years. 

“I am thrilled with the opportunity to lead the finest junior hockey league in the world,” said Fallen. “The foundation built by my predecessors, league owners, and the stakeholders throughout the hockey industry have made the USHL an important step along the developmental path for players, coaches, and officials.  I look forward to working with our staff, aligned partners, and the international hockey community at-large to build upon our success.”
