Bruce Hamilton back at helm of WHL board

Kelowna Rockets' president and GM Bruce Hamilton is returning for another two-year term as chairman of the Western Hockey League's board of governors.

Hamilton, 56, is the longest serving chairman in league history as he enters his seventh term.

He was re-elected to the position this week at the WHL's AGM in Calgary.

The Rockets' GM first took over the post in 1998 and served until 2004. Hamilton returned in 2008 and has been sitting as Chairman of the Board ever since.

In addition to being the leader of the WHL's executive committee, Hamilton is a member of the Canadian Hockey League's board of directors.
