Former Clarkson goaltender Chris Rogles has been named an assistant coach at the school.
Rogles, who had been serving as a volunteer goaltending coach with Merrimack, replaces Jean Francois Houle, who left the program in December to become the coach with Lewiston in the QMJHL.
“We are very excited and feel very fortunate to have Chris join our staff,” Clarkson coach George Roll said in a news release. “He is an alum who enjoyed a very good four years as a goaltender here at Clarkson and a lengthy professional career. It was important for us to get someone to coach our goaltenders on a daily basis, and Chris’ experience will be a tremendous benefit for us in that area.
“Chris is very similar to JF [Houle] in that both of them have very outgoing personalities. He will be very good at recruiting. Chris is a good addition and brings a lot to the table. He will be a good compliment to Greg [Drechsel] and myself.”
Rogles is expected to join the program by the end of January.
He played at Clarkson from 1989 to 1993, compiling a 44-13-4 record with six shutouts, a 2.90 goals-against average and a .903 save percentage. As a senior, he was named the MVP of the ECAC Championship Tournament.
