Gregory Adrian received a bachelor’s degree in business administration with a specialization in sport management from Daemen College, and then set his sights on pursuing a career in hockey operations. He went on to volunteer for two seasons with the Canisius College hockey program while also earning a master’s degree in sport administration.
After graduating from Canisius, Adrian worked in the area of hockey technology at Buffalo’s HarborCenter, and then secured a position as director of hockey operations for the women’s team at the University of Vermont. After two seasons at UVM, he moved on to the same position at the University of Minnesota, a program that has won four of the previous six national championships and more championships than any other program in women’s college hockey.
“Daemen’s environment provided me many great opportunities that I otherwise would not have had during my time as a student,” said Adrian. “I have a lot of great memories from Daemen, and I am especially grateful for all that I learned in classes with Professor Niland and Professor Lynch, who were exceptional teachers.”
