AHL names Joe Siville manager of communications

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. … American Hockey League President and CEO David Andrews announced today that Joe Siville has been appointed manager of communications for the AHL.
Siville, who assumes his duties on Monday, comes to the AHL after two seasons in the communications department at ECHL headquarters in Princeton, N.J. His responsibilities will include managing the league’s corporate communications efforts, as well as assisting AHL vice president of communications Jason Chaimovitch in the day-to-day media relations and internet services of the league.
Prior to joining the ECHL, Siville worked for Comcast Spectacor, assisting in graphic services production for the Philadelphia Flyers (NHL), Phantoms (AHL) and 76ers (NBA). He was with the NHL’s St. Louis Blues before that, first as an intern and then as a marketing/community relations assistant, and also has previous work experience at NBC Sports and with ESPN’s baseball and hockey game production units.
Siville received his bachelor of arts in journalism and history from Rutgers University.
In operation since 1936, the AHL continues to serve as the top development league for all 30 National Hockey League teams. More than 80 percent of today’s NHL players are American Hockey League graduates, and for the fifth year in a row, more than 6.3 million fans attended AHL games across North America in 2005-06.
