COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Phil Cohn (Westfield, N.J.) has been named as the fifth recipient of the Brendan Burke Internship it was announced today by USA Hockey.

Cohn will be based at USA Hockey's National Team Development Program in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and begin his duties in late August. His responsibilities will include interface with the NTDP, national teams, international events, and player development camps. He will also gain exposure to USA Hockey's acclaimed American Development Model and Coaching Education Program.

Cohn spent the past five seasons (2009-14) with the Union College men's ice hockey program. During the Dutchmen's run to the 2014 NCAA Division I national championship, he worked as the hockey operations coordinator and was responsible for all aspects of team travel, managing video production and distribution, and assisting with on-ice practices. Prior to his stint as hockey operations coordinator, Cohn was a student manager and video coordinator with the program for four seasons (2009-13).

Cohn, who graduated from Union College in June 2013 with a degree in computer science, also worked in the school's sports information department as an intern during the 2012-13 season.

Established in April 2010, the Brendan Burke Internship is awarded annually to a recent college graduate who is pursuing a career in hockey operations. The internship was founded in memory of the late Brendan Burke, who served as a student assistant for the Miami University men's ice hockey team and was the son of Brian Burke, director of player personnel for the 2014 U.S. Olympic Men's Ice Hockey Team, general manager of the 2010 U.S. Olympic Men's Ice Hockey Team and current president of hockey operations for the NHL's Calgary Flames.

Brendan Burke passed away in an automobile accident on Feb. 5, 2010.

College), Ryan Breen (North Falmouth, Mass./Providence College), Stephen Greenberg (West Tisbury, Mass./Boston College) and Cole Burkhalter (Knoxville, Tenn./Canisius College) … Donations to the Brendan Burke Internship can be made by clicking here.
