Los Altos native lands USA Hockey internship

Brij Singh of Los Altos has been named the 10th recipient of USA Hockey’s Brendan Burke Internship. He will be based at USA Hockey Arena in Plymouth, Mich., for the 2019-20 season.

Established in 2010, the Brendan Burke Internship is awarded annually to a recent college graduate pursuing a career in hockey operations. The internship was founded in memory of the late Brendan Burke, who served as a student assistant for the Miami University men’s ice hockey team and was killed in a car accident on snowy roads at the age of 21 in 2010.

“We had three generations, but that isn’t the only one,” he said. “Kuk Sool Won is just an all-around great body activity.”
