University of Alaska Fairbanks athletics director Forrest Karr has been named the next chair for the NCAA Men's and Women's Ice Hockey Rules Committee.

"Being selected by peers to serve as chair was an unexpected honor," said Karr. "It's humbling to work with such exceptional people. I've been impressed with the committee's efforts to obtain feedback through surveys as well as the committee's dedication to gathering information through constant communication with the body. We are always fully aware that the game belongs to student-athletes, coaches and fans."

"I'll do my best while serving in this new role to continue the carefully thought out direction that coach (Enrico) Blasi (chair 2004-06) and Col. (Jim) Knowlton (chair 2006-08) have taken the committee in recent years."
