The newly appointed commissioner of the NCHA Jim Scherr (Nebraska 1984) was available for questions before the game between the University of North Dakota and Minnesota State and here are some of the subjects that Mr. Scherr touched on.
There is a good chance that there could be a rotation for the conference tourney between Denver, St. Paul and or Omaha.
The Director of Hockey Operations will be hired soon, maybe by the Frozen Four. There are 120 candidates for the Hockey Operations director.
The Director of Hockey Operations will be stationed in Colorado Springs as well.
The NCHC Commissioner is not concerned about the Fighting Sioux nickname, he is monitoring the situation and the nickname is not an issue for the schools in the conference. Commissioner Scherr expects the issue to be settled one way or another by the time the NCHC starts.
