*CCHA Hockey of Heroes Initiative Release* - (PDF)

The Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA) is teaming up with Ferris State University for its Heroes of Hockey Day initiative as part of Hockey Day in Michigan, which is set for Jan. 29, 2011.

Heroes of Hockey Day was implemented to recognize special individual "all-stars" and their signifcant contributions to the game of hockey in their community and in the state of Michigan as a whole.

A "Hero of Hockey Day" can fulfill one of many important roles in the hockey community.  He or she can be a longtime coach, a dedicated offi cial, a hard-working, ice rink employee, a committed area sponsor, or a devoted member of a local hockey association board.  A "hockey hero" does not necessarily have to do one of those jobs, but he or she must be dedicated to the game of hockey in the community. 

To nominate a "Hero of Hockey Day", please send an e-mail to

The e-mail must contain the following:
- Name of the nominator
- E-mail address and phone number to reach the nominator
- Name of the nominee
- The name of the local hockey organization
- The CCHA team in closest proximity to you
- A 200-word maximum passage on why the nominee is a "Hero of Hockey Day."

The deadline for nominations is Friday, January 21.

Winners of the Ferris State package will receive four tickets to any game during the month of February, an autographed team poster, and two tickets to annual year-end Ferris State hockey banquet.
