“I’ve seen tremendous work done and commitment by the directors over the last year to move forward our mandate to grow the game across the country,” said Drago, who was acclaimed as chair of the Hockey Canada Board of Directors in Dec. 2014. “I welcome our new and returning directors, and look forward to working with them over the next year.”
