Bulldog Hockey recently announced a 1.5 million dollar fundraising campaign to provide resources for recruiting, team travel, strength training and conditioning, performance technology and facility upgrades.
Ferris men's ice hockey has a 40-year tradition of competing at the highest level and enjoys national recognition for its NCAA Division I program.
The campaign quiet phase raised $880,000 in private support. The steering committee includes standout Bulldog Hockey alumnus and 2-time Stanley Cup winner and Olympic Gold Medalist Chris Kunitz (03), as well as steering committee chair Chris Bowers ('78), Gary Cousino ('73), Lyle Nagle ('76) and Zach Redmond ('11), who's currently a member of the National Hockey League’s (NHL) Colorado Avalanche. Former head coach Rick Duffet, who was the school's first Division I coach, is serving as co-vice chair along with Kunitz while former Ferris State University President and hockey program founder Bob Ewigleben is part of the steering committee, which also includes past player parent Dick Redmond and Ferris State Board of Trustees Vice Chair Sueann Walz
