The Oswego State Department of Athletics named Dan Kapuscinski its next public address announcer for men’s ice hockey games. Kapuscinski replaces 19-year veteran Bill Foley, who retired after the 2015-16 season.
A 2007 graduate of St. John Fisher College in Rochester, N.Y., Kapuscinski holds a degree in communications. During his time at Fisher, Kapuscinski worked as an announcer for several of the college’s programs, including its basketball programs.
Kapuscinski has local ties, having graduated from Oswego High School in 2003. He drove at Oswego Speedway from 2001-2007. Following his graduation from college, Kapuscinski went to work for the World Racing Group, based in Concord, N.C., where he handled public relations and digital media.
In 2012, he moved back home to become the public relations director at Oswego Speedway. In this role, Kapuscinski handled everything from press release writing, to event promotion and management, as well as digital and print ad production. He also served as the pit reporter for Oswego Speedway’s national broadcasts on SPEED SPORT and MAVTV.
A dedicated Laker men’s ice hockey fan, Kapuscinski rarely missed a home game in the early 2000s at Romney Field House. He even followed the team to Vermont in 2003 to watch the squad take on Middlebury and Norwich in the Frozen Four. l
