AHCA Meeting Mini-Update

Woody Wommack of was able to provide a quick mini-update of the goings on at the AHCA meetings this weekend.

Admittedly, it isn't much*, but it does confirm several of the topics we expected to come up this weekend.

Exhibit A: the rules committee discussing hits to the head. This is such a hot button topic, so you knew it had to be coming up. Given the strict way the NCAA has been enforcing other safety-related penalties (see: checking from behind), I think we can all take a safe guess where the hits-to-the-head issue might be heading.

Exhibit B: It turns out that Paul Kelly was there to talk about finding ways for club hockey teams to become self-sustaining varsity programs. I'm as shocked as you are.

* Frankly, I'm surprised to see anything come up today. It's the only published article I could find on the subject online... I suspect that we'll be able to find more on Monday, but as of right now, Mr. Wommack is all we've got. And for that, we thank him.
