Art Berglund

Born: September 4, 1940 in Fort Francis, Ontario, Canada Art Berglunds career in international ice hockey spans portions of five decades, during which time he has managed or served on the administrative staff of more than 30 U.S. teams in a variety of tournaments worldwide. Berglund served as USA Hockeys director of national teams and international activities for 11 years before being named senior director of international administration in 1996. His start in international ice hockey came soon after his graduation from Colorado College in 1963, where he was the leading scorer for the Tigers during his senior season. Former IIHF President William Thayer Tutt immediately put Berglunds skills to work at the famous Broadmoor World Arena. At the end of his 13 years there, Berglund had enough experience to manage the United States National Team from 1973-75 as well as the General Manager of the 1976 U.S. Olympic squad and later again in 1988. Until 1992, Berglund was the General Manager with the U.S. Junior Team eight times along with the Mens National Team from 1985-91. Berglund helped engineer a silver medal for the U.S. at the 2002 Olympics. He received the NHLs prestigious Lester Patrick Award in 1992 for outstanding contributions to the sport of ice hockey in America. Berglund retired from his job at USA Hockey on June 30, 2005, but still serves as a consultant.
