In addition to his broadcasting work, the 2013-14 season will mark Parkhurst's 17th year as Hockey East's website designer and coordinator. Parkhurst, a 1993 graduate of the University of New Hampshire, assists in the league's public relations efforts with multimedia solutions, as well as with day-to-day online efforts and game-night updates.

Parkhurst's broadcasting career is long and varied beginning with his years as a student-manager with the UNH hockey team when he also called games for UNH's student-radio station. During the 1997-98 season he called the Hockey East Online Game of the Week, one of the first online broadcasts of college hockey on the internet.

He then called three seasons (1998-2001) of Merrimack College hockey and basketball while also calling select UNH hockey games for New Hampshire Public Television. Beginning in the fall of 2001, Parkhurst became the full-time play-by-play voice for NHPTV, a position he held until 2008 when the station ceased broadcasting UNH hockey games.

Starting in 2007, Parkhurst also became the primary radio voice for UNH hockey. He will begin his seventh season calling Wildcat games on the radio for Learfield Sports while transitioning to television broadcasts produced by UNH Athletics for a number of home games. From 2006 through 2012, Parkhurst called a variety of regular season college hockey games and also worked six NCAA college hockey tournament regionals for ESPNU. In 2008, he traveled with Boston College to provide radio play-by-play for the Eagles at the Frozen Four during their national championship run. Parkhurst has also called games for NESN, including the 2013 Women's Hockey East Championship game. The 2013-14 season will mark his second year calling select college hockey games for NBC Sports Network.

Parkhurst is the owner of SportDesigns.com a web design and e-commerce company. An avid golfer and musician, he resides in Conway, N.H., with his wife Lynn and their two children, Jonathan (20) and Riley (14).

The award was renamed in memory of long-time Boston Globe Sportswriter Joe Concannon in 2001. Each recipient has demonstrated a superior body of work in covering and promoting Hockey East over an extended period.
