College Hockey:
Former Union goalie Mayotte named assistant coach at St. Lawrence

Former Union goaltender Kris Mayotte has been named an assistant coach at St. Lawrence.

Mayotte pent last season as a volunteer assistant coach at Cornell following an eight-year playing career as a goalie in both college and the professional ranks.

“I am very excited to welcome Kris to St. Lawrence University and to our hockey staff,” said SLU coach Greg Carvel in a news release. “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.”

Mayotte, who played at Union from 2002-06, was a full-time goalie coach in 2010-11 in Maryland, having spent the previous seven years of his playing career as a part-time instructor.

    Where is B.D.?

    He can tell us how special the NCHC is.

    Also, we can talk about how special North Dokata is to college hockey. He must be the AD for ND.

    They formed the NCHC so people who don’t understand college hockey can fill their seats. People in Utah can watch the NCHC on tv.

    What a great league the NCHC is.

    Quality teams, great fans like B.D. No trophies, No tradition, Non hockey people running the league, three teams declined NCHC offer to play(Notre Dame, BC and BU).

    The super friendly league has been formed. If your my friend you can join my league, too.

    The NCHC should do college hockey a favor by folding before they get started.

    The teams are not premiers, elites, or nationals.

    The NCHC is a lie.

    Just ask UAA, Alaska, Bowling Green, Ferris, Bemdji, Mankato, LSSU, NMU, and MTU? The leftover nine got screwed.

    Don’t schedule the NCHC NC games in two seasons, Play the teams with heart, digity, spirit, and tradition.

    The New WCHA is where real college hockey is played.

    Look at the resumes of these teams and they will be deeper then the other league.

    The NCHC is a lie and the WCHA will always be the real college hockey product.

      I thought this was going to be the NCHC second announcement.

      They forgot to announce the announcement.

      Maybe the two announcements was Joe Novak. Nice.

        Still sounding Jilted.

          When can the yooper schools play North Dokata at Soo at the Puller Ice rink? Soo vs Sioux at a historical rink. Schedule this NC games in a couple of years.

          Old time hockey.

        You North Dakota guys like to hijack the comments on ECAC blog posts during the regular season. Why should the off season be any different?
