Jon Edwards is leading media relations and communications for the U.S. Under-18 Men's National Team for the fourth time at the 2024 IIHF Under-18 Men's World Championship, having previously been on staff for last year’s gold-medal winning squad, as well as at the 2022 and 2021 event.

Edwards is within his fifth season as manager of communications for USA Hockey's National Team Development Program and USA Hockey Arena, where he manages day-to-day communication efforts for both.

The Neversink, New York, native joined USA Hockey after three seasons with the ECHL’s Adirondack Thunder, where he served as the director of communications.

Prior to joining the Thunder, Edwards spent three seasons in minor league baseball, working for the Syracuse Chiefs (AAA) and Altoona Curve (AA) where his focus was video production, creative services and game presentation. A 2016 graduate of Syracuse University, Edwards earned his bachelor’s degree in broadcast and digital journalism from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications.
