NEW ADVISORY BOARD MEMBER
From: Gary Kaufman, General Manger:
Five seasons ago, a new era began in FAU Hockey when Dan Bouganim, myself and others formed a Board of Advisors to provide much needed leadership and stability for the OWLS Hockey organization. The ensuing 4 years resulted in a very stable organization, continuous growth on and off the ice and post-season play including a trip to participate in the National Championship Tournament!
The effort it takes to sustain and improve upon our growth has increased tremendously… beyond what the existing board can handle. It has become clear that because of this and the desire to make another run for a national title, we need to bring more talent and experience to the leadership of the organization. As such, it is my honor to announce the addition of Scott Grosky to the Board of Advisors. Scott brings experience and passion for growing hockey programs AND is an FAU Alum!
Here are some highlights of what Scott has done in the past in the hockey world:
* Serves on the Executive Board of Directors Florida Panthers Scholastic Hockey League (FPSHL)
* Co-Founder & Executive Board Member Southern Collegiate Hockey Conference (also past commissioner)
* Assistant Coach & General Manager Florida Atlantic University Ice Hockey
* Head Coach Northeast High School Ice Hockey Fort Lauderdale, FL (FPSHL)
Scott is as excited to join us as we are to have him. In his own words,
“I’d like to express my gratitude to the Board for their confidence and belief in my experience and vision. The FAU Ice Hockey Club is already a nationally recognized and well-respected organization. I look forward to working with the entire staff to build on the existing foundation to ensure future success and enjoyment, on and off the ice; for our players, supporters, volunteers and fans.”

The FAU ICE HOCKEY CLUB IS PROUD TO WELCOME OUR 2021-2022 TEAM TO OUR DEDICATED AND NEWLY RENOVATED LOCKER ROOM AT THE PANTHER’S ICEDEN! Welcome home OWLS!
The FAU Owls Hockey Club, along with the other 16 SECHC teams, and the 6 teams from the SCHC, are making a move from the ACHA to the Collegiate Hockey Federation (CHF) when play resumes in January. CHF’s mission is to provide for and enable the best club hockey experience for collegiate student-athletes in the United States. The CHF is an affiliate of the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU). The AAU has been raising champions for more than a century. Since its inception in 1888, the AAU has set the standard for amateur sports in the United States. We are very excited about this move and look forward to some incredible matchups!
