PLYMOUTH, Mich. – Brij Singh (Los Altos, Calif.) has been named the 10th recipient of USA Hockey's Brendan Burke Internship. Singh will be based at USA Hockey Arena in Plymouth, Michigan.
Established in 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 tragically killed in a car accident on snowy roads at the age of 21 on Feb. 5, 2010.
Singh’s responsibilities will include interfacing with the National Team Development Program, 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.
Singh graduated from the University of Michigan’s Stephen M. Ross School of Business in May 2019, and will complete his dual-degree from the University’s School of Kinesiology in December. Singh most recently worked with the NTDP as a marketing intern where he assisted with in-game promotions and fan experience.
While attending college, Singh also gained experience with the NHL’s Nashville Predators as an amateur hockey and fan development intern, with the NHL as a corporate social responsibility intern and with the United States Olympic Committee as a diversity and inclusion volunteer.
