Commissioner Kyle Knell Re-elected to Serve Two More Years

Kyle Knell, the incumbent Commissioner of College Hockey South, has been unanimously re-elected during this year's annual meeting, reaffirming confidence in his leadership. Taking the reins in May 2022 Knell has overseen significant growth and innovation within the conference.

Under his guidance, the conference has expanded from 19 to 46 teams across four divisions: D1, D2, D3, and Women's, each with its own playoff tournament. 

Knell has also enhanced the profile of the conference's longest standing tournament, the Savannah Hockey Classic, and introduced new tournaments such as the Battle at the Beach in Wesley Chapel, Florida, and the SECHC Tournament in Pelham, Alabama.

In addition to his focus on conference expansion, Knell has established an internship program aimed at providing college students with experience in broadcasting, public relations, social media management, and journalism.

A graduate of the University of Tennessee with degrees in Journalism and Electronic Media, as well as Cinema Studies, Knell has a strong background in collegiate hockey, having played for the University's team and ranking among its top-ten scorers.

Under Knell's leadership, College Hockey South aims to continue its growth and development, further solidifying its position as a prominent organization for collegiate hockey teams in the Southeast.
