Ex-Union goalie Kris Mayotte named St. Lawrence assistant coach
Former Union goalie Kris Mayotte has been named an assistant hockey coach at St. Lawrence, Saints first-year head coach Greg Carvel announced Tuesday.
Mayotte played for the Dutchmen from 2002-06. He was 46-52-13 with a 2.69 goals-against average in his four years.
Mayotte spent last season as a volunteer assistant coach with Cornell. He joins associate head coach Mike Hurlbut on the staff. Carvel and Hurlbut ran the team last year in the absence of Joe Marsh, who retired at the end of the season due to health reasons.
"I am very excited to welcome Kris to St. Lawrence University and to our hockey staff," Carvel said in a statement. "He will be a valuable asset and addition to our program. As a former All-ECAC goaltender at Union and as a former assistant coach at Cornell, he has a strong understanding of our league and what makes it special. The ability to have a full-time goaltending coach on our staff will be instrumental to our success as we move forward.
"More importantly, Kris is an ambitious and energetic young man whose infectious personality will be a benefit in recruiting and interacting with our players on a daily basis."
