The Johnstown Chiefs (ECHL) named Frank Anzalone as its new Head Coach. Anzalone becomes the sixth Head Coach in team history.
Anzalone, 51, comes to the Chiefs after spending the last four seasons with the Lake Superior Lakers, his second head coaching stint with the school. Anzalone, a Brooklyn N.Y. native, is no stranger to the ECHL. He has been behind the benches of the former Nashville Knights (1991-92), Roanoke Express (1993-98) and Pee Dee Pride (1999-00). His career ECHL coaching record is 269-183-41 (.587), including six playoff appearances in eight seasons. He also has American Hockey League coaching experience with the Newmarket Saints (1990-91) and captured the Atlantic division title with the Lowell Lock Monsters in 1998-99.
Anzalone was fired by the Lakers and still has legal proceedings initiated against Lake Superior State at the present time.
