The Colorado Eagles are announcing some big changes as their season comes to a close: namely, a new face leading the charge.

In a press release, the Colorado Eagles made the official announcement that Brian Petrovek, formerly CEO and alternate governor for the AHL’s Stockton Heat, will be the new president and alternate governor of the Colorado Eagles.

Not only did Petrovek work with Stockton Heat but his resume also includes time with Team USA during the 1996 World Cup of Hockey, the United State's Men's Team at the 1998 Olympic Winter Games, and the NHL's New Jersey Devils, to name a few notable spots. He was also inducted into the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame with Team USA in 2016.

In the press release, Petrovek expressed his excitement to begin with the team:

This organization is one of the most accomplished in the world of minor-professional sports, and I am excited to help grow the Eagles to even greater heights. We have a dynamic group in the front office, world-class ownership, a premiere affiliation with the Colorado Avalanche and a fanbase that is second to none. That combination made this an opportunity that is among the most exciting of my career.

The Colorado Eagles have had a nail-biter of a season, and now the team is focused on strengthening their team and most importantly, their leadership. Petrovek leads the charge.
