Collins hired as new Mercyhurst women’s assistant

Delaney Collins has been hired as an assistant coach for the Mercyhurst women’s team and will take over the spot vacated by Louis Goulet, who was promoted to associate head coach last month.

“I am very excited about the prospect of coaching the Lakers and I look forward to sharing my experiences with Team Canada to grow and develop young hockey players,” said Collins in a statement. “I am grateful for the opportunity to work in a hockey program of this magnitude and to express my passion for the game.”

A member of Canada’s National Women’s Team from 1999-2011, Collins has played in five IIHF championships, winning gold in 2000, 2004, and 2007 and silver in 2005 and 2008.
