I found this interesting because twenty years ago this stat would not even exist.

Interesting. Very diverse list of big DI programs, small DI programs, DIII programs, and programs long gone. Chicago State of the old CCHA small college division of the 70s and U.S. International in San Diego of the 80s stood out amongst New Haven, Hartford, Ithaca and Boston State.

One small error. Even though Myles Fee's Edmonton Oilers bio says "Manhattan in Purchase, N.Y." Manhattan is in the Bronx and has no college hockey. Fee played for Manhattanville, which is in Purchase and has hockey.

I don't know if Board Members count but Mark Falcone of the University Denver is one of the 6 Board Members for the Minnesota Wild.

Doesn't Falcone own a small minority share?

Not sure about Mark but his brother Phil (Harvard) is a minority owner.
