Today at the Danbury Ice Arena, the Danbury Colonials, proud members of the North American 3 Hockey League (NA3HL) announced Kevin Cunningham as the team’s inaugural Head Coach.  The Colonials will begin play in the NA3HL in the 2019-20 season.

Cunningham, a native of Doylestown, Pennsylvania, brings a wealth of experience to the organization as both a Collegiate, Prep School, and Junior Hockey Coach.  Previous stints for Cunningham include the Connecticut Chiefs (Eastern Hockey League), Cheshire Academy (Prep), Wesleyan University, and Connecticut College.
