Pivnick moving up to AHL’s Coachella Valley

Evan Pivnick’s rise to minor league hockey’s highest level has been simple: grab college diploma, spend five seasons in the ECHL then move to “The A.” That path has taken Pivnick to the expansion Coachella Valley Firebirds as Director of Broadcast & Communications.

His career path almost wasn’t so straightforward. Pivnick graduated from Bowling Green State University in 2017. He interviewed that fall with the ECHL’s Adirondack Thunder. Had Pivnick not been offered the job, his fallback was an internship with an AHL team. He nailed the Adirondack interview, though, and was hired as a broadcaster and account executive. One year later, he was promoted to the same position he now holds with Coachella Valley.

Pivnick’s five seasons in Glens Falls prepared him well for the AHL. “This community and fanbase has been great and welcomed me since day one,” he stated in a press release. “Glens Falls is a special place and it has been an honor getting to start my professional broadcasting career in this great hockey town,” he smiles.

If Pivnick’s career continues on the same straightforward trajectory, his next stop is the NHL.
