Former NHL executive and lottery director named PSU trustees

Posted: Updated:

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett is turning to a National Hockey League executive and a former director of the Pennsylvania Lottery to be the next two members of the Penn State Board of Trustees.
 
The governor on Friday nominated Buffalo Sabres chief development officer Cliff Benson - who's also a former member of the board of Jerry Sandusky's charity for children - and the lottery's former executive director, Todd Rucci.
 
The nominations are subject to the approval of a majority of the Pennsylvania Senate.
 
Benson and Rucci would take the board seats currently held by Ira Lubert and Alvin Clemens.
 
The governor's office says Benson was "instrumental in facilitating" an $88 million donation by Sabres owner Terry Pegula that funded the university's hockey program three years ago.
