The nominee list for the new board of directors for Hockey Canada has been announced.
Hockey Canada members will vote on the 9-man shortlist on Saturday, and will either reject all or accept them on a one-year term.

Fraser, who as born in Kingston, Jamaica and grew up in Kingston, Ont., has been an arbitrator on the Court of Arbitration for Sport since 1995 and served on the first ad hoc court at the Olympic Games in 1996.
Cassie Campbell-Pascall, a three-time Olympian who captained Canada’s women’s team to gold medals in 2002 and 2006, is among the eight board members nominated.
The other nominees are Grant Borbridge, Julie Duranceau, Dave Evans, Marni Fullerton, Jonathan F. Goldbloom, Marian Jacko and Andrea Poole.
