Three more years for BCHL commish

John Grisdale has signed a three year extension to continue as BCHL boss through 2017-18.

The BCHL brain-trust have signed matching three year extensions that will keep the junior A league’s head office intact through 2018.

The men inking deals are commissioner John Grisdale, executive director Trevor Alto and communications director Brent Mutis.

Grisdale joined the BCHL in 2003-04 and his contract will see him through to his 15th season.

Alto was hired in 2012 and Mutis was hired in 2010.

Under their watch over the last five years, the league has averaged 126 college commitments per season, which translates into about $2 million in scholarship value to families.

The league has also won four RBC Cups as national champions, as well as the inaugural Crescent Point Energy Western Canada Cup title in 2013.

“As we continue to develop our brand and prove ourselves as a worthy development option for players and their families, it’s important we keep our team together at the league office,” said Grisdale.

Meanwhile, Rob Lambie has signed on as director of hockey operations.
