Some Personal News.

It is with sincere excitement, yet also with a heavy heart that I make a major personal announcement. After four unforgettable years in the Battlefords I have accepted a position with the Prince George Cougars of the Western Hockey League. I will be responsible for Corporate Sales, Media Relations and the Play-By-Play Broadcasting for all regular season and playoff games for the 2011-2012 season and (hopefully) beyond.

The past 48 hours have been extremely emotional, and there's a lot to process right now, and the next few weeks are no doubt going to be an absolute blur. There are so many things that I want to reflect on, and so many people that I want to thank, and I will certainly do so before my time in the Battlefords comes to a close.

I'm excited for the new opportunity, and I'm overjoyed by the fact that Julie and I get to start a new adventure together. This is something that I have been building towards ever since I started watching hockey and I'm incredibly excited to hit the ground running and contribute to the legacy of the Prince George Cougars.

The support that I have received from family, friends and colleagues has been nothing short of amazing. The phone-calls, e-mails, and texts have made me feel incredibly humbled and grateful. I feel so much gratitude to those who have cheered me on and encouraged me along the way.

I promise that there will be some more entries and some deeper thoughts posted on here before the move. For now I just wanted to publish the news, and make everyone aware of the decision.

Thanks for stopping by. Your readership and support is something that I genuinely appreciate.

More tomorrow, I promise.

Congrats Dan. That sounds like a tremendous opportunity. The Battlefords' and SJHL's loss is definitely Prince George's gain. Best of luck in the new oppoetunity.

Sad to see Dan go, those long, cold winter drives won't be nearly as entertaining. Best of luck in Prince George, I'm sure a few North Stars fans will tune in for a listen!
