Former Harvard goaltender John Daigneau has joined the Canisius staff as an assistant coach.
Daigneau will work with Canisius’ goaltenders and in recruiting, video operations, academics and community outreach.
“We are extremely excited to have John join our staff,” Canisius coach Dave Smith said in a statement. “He comes very highly recommended from his coaches at Harvard and the people he has worked with in the past. John has been with numerous championship teams and our Griffin hockey program will look to draw on those positive experiences.”
Daigneau played in 43 games at Harvard from 2002 to 2006, a stretch in which the Crimson won two ECAC Hockey titles and appeared in the NCAA tournament all four years.
In his senior season, he was named the most outstanding player at the ECAC Hockey tournament and also was named the team’s most valuable player.
