FARGO - The United States Hockey League announced Wednesday that Jon Kram, president of the Fargo Force, was named the 2013-14 Dave Tyler USHL Executive of the Year. 

"I am honored to be given this award as voted on by my peers," Kram said in a press release. "This award is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our entire front office and coaching staff as they contribute to th team's success each day. I want to thank them, as without them this wouldn't be possible."
