PCIM Updates

Hi Park City Ice Miners! It has been a very busy month and we have accomplished a lot. Here are some organization-wide reminders and updates:


The PCIM would like to congratulate former Park City Ice Miner, Ella Bynan, for committing to play NCAA Division III ice hockey for Hood College beginning in 2024-2025. We can't wait to follow your collegiate career!


The Park City Ice Miners continue to highly recommend the use of all protective equipment including neck guards and cut-resistant sleeves, pants, socks, etc. USA Hockey will address a potential rule change proposal as early as their January board meeting and we will be following the outcome of this meeting closely.


Just a reminder that cell phones are PROHIBITED from locker rooms at all times. Please remind your player that PCIM has a zero-tolerance policy for cell phones in locker rooms.


The Park City Ice Miners raised over $12,000 at the JANS Winter Welcome event from opportunity drawing ticket sales, silent auction items, and reimbursement of volunteer hours. We use these funds to help pay for scholarships and events to support youth hockey in Summit County and the surrounding areas.

Welcome 14U Tier II Coach, AJ DeHerrera

By PC Ice Miners Communications 04/29/2024, 11:45am MDT

The Park City Ice Miners are thrilled to welcome AJ DeHerrera to the organization. Coach DeHerrera will join Coach Ryan Flink on our 14U Tier II team for the 2024-2025 season. Below you will find Coach DeHerrera's bio: 

AJ was born and raised in West Jordan UT and began playing hockey at four years old and continued to play at the AA/AAA levels. Unfortunately, AJ suffered career-ending injuries during his
senior year of high school and was forced to retire. After high school, AJ enlisted in the US Army and attended Colorado State University. After moving back to Utah, AJ decided to take on coaching to create a strong system for player development and keeps player safety and fun as his top priorities. AJ recognizes the impact the sport of hockey can have on players' lives and the great life lessons that come along with it.

AJ started his coaching career as a private power skating and skills coach. From there, he joined the Alta High School coaching staff where he remained for three and a half years before joining the Park City Ice Miners.

Welcome to the Ice Miners family, Coach DeHerrera!
