Ramsey's Jim Hunt Named Recipient of
2003 Dr. John J. McMullen Service to NJ Hockey Award

East Rutherford, NJ – Jim Hunt of Ramsey, NJ was today named the recipient of the 2003 Dr. John J. McMullen Service to New Jersey Hockey Award. The award is presented annually by the National Hockey League’s New Jersey Devils to those who have supported amateur hockey throughout the state.

Hunt, 37, is currently in his third season as head coach of Fairfield University (MAAC). He joined the Stags in 2000-01 after spending the 1997-00 seasons as assistant coach and assistant director of player personnel for the United States National Team development program. While with the national team, Hunt’s responsibilities included training the U.S. National under-17 and under-18 teams for both domestic and international competition. He served as assistant coach for the national team evaluation camps (1997-00), and as assistant coach for both the 1994 and 2000 under-17 squads. The 1994 team earned a Silver Medal at the World U-17 Challenge.

Hunt’s coaching career began as assistant coach with his alma mater, St. Mary’s University (MN) in 1985. In 1987, he became head coach at Paramus Catholic High School (NJ) where he served through 1992. From 1992-97, Hunt was general manager/head coach of the New Jersey Junior Devils, leading the team to two Metropolitan Junior League championships, and three national championship appearances.

Hunt has served as director of player development for USA Hockey’s Atlantic District since 1996, and is responsible for implementing the process of identification, training, and developing players from New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware.

Jim was born in Fort Lee, NJ, and currently serves his hometown as a detective. He and his wife, Traci, reside in Ramsey, NJ with their two sons, James and Vincent.

Winner of the 2004 Lady Byng Award and the 2003 and 2004 Joe Nieuwendyk award.
"He has no ego," says Lou Lamoriello, general manager of the New Jersey Devils. "I don't think he has a selfish bone in his body. It gets infectious with people around him, but that's Joe. Having him here was something very special."
And the simple truth is this -- before and after Joe Nieuwendyk, this franchise has not been as good. Yes the same could be said for others, but Nieuwendyk's effect on his team, on his team's best players, on the fans and in the community can only be compared to, well, what Jarome Iginla is doing now in Calgary.

This is how big your signature should be. Any larger and you are compensating.
