Zeldes steps down at Oakland University

Compiled by MiCHO Staff

Longtime Oakland player, coach and general manager Shaun Zeldes announced his resignation as general manager of OU hockey to pursue his career in consulting.

"I will always have fond memories of OU hockey as a player, coach and GM," said Zeldes. "I will miss all the friends I made within the organization and wish the team the best in the years to come. With my hectic travel schedule with my employer, I would be doing a disservice to the OU hockey organization by not being more available to the day to day needs of the team."

Zeldes was a key contributor to the program since the dawn of the organization and will be missed by the entire OU hockey program and ACHA community.
