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.
