The Franklin Park Ice Arena is excited to welcome our new Hockey Director Brandon Niedziela. Those involved at the Ice Arena may already know Brandon. He is a current head coach and coordinator of our Gold Mites team. He has also been involved with our Junior Panthers, Panther Paws and Panther Hockey clinics over the past several years.
Brandon’s hockey roots were planted right here at the Franklin Park Ice Arena! He grew up playing in the Panthers Hockey program. In high school, he played for Leyden Hockey and then went on to play for both Robert Morris University and Northern Illinois University. Brandon’s hockey background has now come full circle as his own son Easton is playing in the same program.
Brandon is motivated and eager to take on this new full time role as Hockey Director and we are confident in his ability to lead all of our hockey programming, both youth and adults, in a positive direction.
