The Alberta Junior Hockey League will be getting a technological boost in the upcoming season.
The AJHL last week announced the hiring of Dean Laschowski as the AJHL video review manager. The new position brings with it the capability to use video to review plays.
Laschowski will work with AJHL Vice President George McCorry in the areas of video review, supervision of game officials, and supplementary discipline.
“We are proud to have Dean Laschowski join our staff and are grateful for the unique experience and knowledge he brings with him. This new position further extends our commitment to player safety and is another example of the AJHL showing strong leadership in Junior A hockey across the CJHL,” said AJHL President Craig T. Cripps via press release.
Laschowski, prior to joining the AJHL, was the Officiating Manager for the Western Hockey League and was an AJHL Linesman at one point.
The new video reviews are expected to come into effect this upcoming season.
