Siegel is a cum laude graduate of the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania, where he played on the their college hockey team all four years. In , he sold his shares in the company and decided to help the sport in other ways as an entrepreneur, primarily through HockeyTech.
HockeyTech Inc. Their expertise, production capabilities that come with being a trusted provider, and the sheer volume of online productions they do every year, made it logical for the company to create easy ways for leagues and tournaments to offer premium streaming, websites, analytics, and more, while located often times in dilapidated rinks and non WiFi friendly facilities.
He also spoke about their official scoring and stats system for minor pro leagues, where goals and assists are automatically inputted in system and can then be sent to the media, if needed.

I asked about an exit strategy. Understanding that Stu has done well with his investments in the past, I also wanted to know if HockeyTech was a hobby since he loves the sport and still plays at the ripe old age of 53, or was it an investment that is poised for a substantial ROI if bought out.
I want to bring something to the hockey world, based on analytics. This was not built with an exit strategy, there are no outside investors. I want to grow it. We help build brands and fanbases, especially a local fanbase for tier one leagues, junior hockey, NCAA, minor pro hockey, and professional NHL.

Division of the Western Conference in the Western Hockey League because attending their live games was so much fun. My skating skills were not so good or I would have probably ended up playing competitively as a youth.
I love blogging about the union of sports tech no matter what sport it is but hockey has a special place in my heart. The NHL preseason is now underway which means the road to the Stanley Cup has begun and junior hockey is not far behind.
To me that sounds like a lot to ask but for hockey fanatics, career minded players, and leagues and tournaments looking to upgrade, it is the cost of doing digital hockey business in thanks to HockeyTech.
