Team Patrick*

Commissioner Patrick returns to the sidelines for the 2023 3ICE season. After stints as a player in California, St. Louis, Kansas City and Washington, Patrick retired from professional hockey in 1979. He was hired by the legendary coach Herb Brooks to become the Asst. GM/Asst. Coach of the 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team that famously defeated the Soviet Union, better known as the “Miracle on Ice.” Craig has served multiple NHL franchises in several capacities since 1980, starting with the New York Rangers, where he held the titles of GM, Head Coach and Director of Operations. In 1989, he was hired as the GM of the Pittsburgh Penguins--a club he also coached for two seasons--and proceeded to back-to-back Stanley Cups with the Pens in 1990-91 and 1991-92. Patrick was named NHL Executive of the Year by Sporting News three times (1990-91, 1997-98, 1998-99).
