He is also the timekeeper supervisor and liaison between the Board of Directors and Referee Development Committee. In addition Dave also works as a door person twice a week. Many of you have seen Dave in all of our venues as he is constantly out watching games across the NYHL.

The NYHL would like to congratulate Dave on receiving this award.
