Vermont promotes Patrick and Wallack to associate head coaches

Vermont assistant coaches Kevin Patrick and Kyle Wallack have both been promoted to the position of associate head coach.

Both enter their fourth season with the Catamounts in 2015-16.

Last season, Patrick and Wallack helped the Catamounts post their second straight 20-win season for the first time since the 1995-96 and 1996-97 campaigns.

Led by Patrick, UVM continued its penalty killing success at a rate of 87.5-percent to rank 10th overall in the NCAA. As a team, Vermont was the seventh-least penalized team in college hockey and won the Charlie Holt Sportsmanship Award for having the least penalty minutes during Hockey East play.

Wallack coached the power play to a 20.1 percent success rate, good for 13th in the country. It marked the first Vermont power play unit to eclipse 20-percent in a single season since 2005-06. UVM’s power play clicked at better than 22-percent in Hockey East play to rank second in the league.
