BOYS' HOCKEY: CIAC, coaches discuss reorganization of divisions
Because the number of hockey teams have gone from 67 to 57 since 2008, the Ice Hockey Committee is trying to find a way to keep the three-division setup. The CIAC is favoring going to a 12-team elite Division I group of teams with the remaining teams split up into an equal number of Division II teams and Division III teams.
"We listened to different proposals from the coaches and their concerns,” said Milford coach Sal Follo, who represents the state’s coaches on the CIAC Ice Hockey Committee. “The most important thing for all of us is to keep the three divisions.
“The coaches had their say today and it was a very productive meeting. What it comes down to is tweaking what was presented by the Ice Hockey Committee (12-team elite division). Nothing definite was decided today and the Hockey Committee will meet to come up with a final proposal to present to the CIAC Board of Control (Feb. 28) for their approval.”
