June 30, 2009 - Central Hockey League (CHL) - New Mexico Scorpions News Release

[RIO RANCHO, N.M.]- The Scorpions organization has lost their most tenured employee to the AHL. Michael Gonzales has taken a account executive job with the Texas Stars, who will take the ice for the first time this fall.

"I am sad to leave the Scorpions because of the great friendships I have created with the staff and fans," said Gonzales. "It is also exciting to get a chance at the next level and return home, closer to my family. I look forward to this new challenge."

Gonzales has been with the Scorpions since the 2004-05 season. Throughout his tenure with New Mexico, the Texas native has risen from Account Executive to Senior Account Executive to Ticket Director.

"Mike will be missed by everyone that is a part of the Scorpions family," said Adam Minnick, Scorpions Public Relations Director. "Coming to the office everyday you knew Mike would be there with a smile and a good joke, no matter what was going on around us."
