WCHA hires new women's commissioner

Aaron Kemp has been at Mercyhurst since 2004


Kemp played college hockey at Canisius College and later was an assistant coach for the Canisius men and the Mercyhurst women. At Mercyhurst, Kemp was part of a staff that led the Lakers to a 109-25-14 record and four NCAA tournament appearances between 2004 and 2008.

He moved to athletic administration at Mercyhurst in 2008.

Kemp takes over a league that has had much success on the ice. WCHA teams have appeared in 15 consecutive national championship games, winning 14 in a row from 2000 to 2013.

“The WCHA has identified itself as the premiere women’s hockey conference, producing some of the most elite players in the game today,” Kemp said. “I’m thrilled to begin serving the member institutions and student-athletes. I’m committed to the same tradition of excellence and look forward to enhancing the overall operation and image of the league moving forward.”
