T HERE'S A REAS ON MONTANA IS KNOWN AS BIG SKY COUNTRY. As the fourth largest state by area in the United States, its vast expanse takes up more square miles than most countries. In his role as Montana Amateur Hockey Association's coach-in-chief, Pete Kamman has covered most of those miles in his quest to expand the reach of hockey in his adopted home state. "We log a lot of miles out here for hockey," he proudly said. "I put so many miles on my old 1995 Jeep Cherokee that I traded it in last season for a 2015 Toyota Tundra. I had to get a pickup truck to keep the hockey gear and the hockey smell out of the cab for my wife." The time and distance spent behind the wheel have been well worth it as Montana has witnessed impressive growth in both the quality and quantity of players thanks in large part to Kamman's efforts. "His impact on hockey here in Montana has been fantastic. He's improved the coaching education program, creating clinics and working with instructors in the state," said association president Mike McIntosh.
