COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – USA Hockey has entered into a multi-year agreement with Harrow Sports to continue as the official equipment, uniform, apparel, and bag supplier of the 2015 and 2017 USA Hockey Men's and Women's National University Team. The partnership supports the U.S. National University Teams participating in the Winter World University Games.
"We're extremely pleased to have Harrow Sports involved with our National University Teams," said Mike Bertsch, assistant executive director for marketing and communications at USA Hockey. "We appreciate their on-going support of both our men's and women's teams at the Winter World University Games."

Both squads had their best finish ever, with the women earning a bronze medal and the men finishing fourth. Harrow has worked with the men's team three times (2009, 2011, 2013) and the women's team once (2013).
"Extending our relationship with USA Hockey and the National University Teams allows us to continue to show our support for both USA Hockey and the American Collegiate Hockey Association," said Todd Johnson, chairman of the hockey advisory board for Harrow Sports.
