Amanda Boulier, a former First Team All-ECAC Hockey selection at St. Lawrence, has joined the Yale women’s staff as a new assistant coach.
Boulier played at SLU from 2011 to 2016.
“We are thrilled to welcome Amanda to the Yale hockey family,” said Yale head coach Joakim Flygh in a statement. “Amanda just finished an outstanding hockey career at St. Lawrence and we expect that she will bring the same character and work ethic to coaching as she did as a player the in the ECAC. Amanda will be a great role model for our players at Yale and we all look forward to working with Amanda on a daily basis.”
While playing at St. Lawrence, Boulier helped the team to three seasons with 19 or more wins. That included an ECAC Hockey tournament championship and NCAA quarterfinals appearance in 2012.
She was an ECAC Hockey All-Rookie selection in 2011-12 after totaling 20 points (4-16-20) in her first season. As a sophomore, she earned First Team All-ECAC Hockey honors, totaling 32 points (8-24-32). After missing the 2013-14 season due to injury, she returned to the ice in 2014-15 and earned Third Team All-ECAC Hockey recognition while also serving as the team captain. Boulier finished with six goals and 17 assists for 23 points. This past season, she again served as team captain. She was named Second Team All-ECAC Hockey, finishing with 29 points (10-19-29).
Boulier broke the St. Lawrence program records for career goals and points by a defenseman in the team’s quarterfinal series win over Princeton this past March. She finished her career with 28 goals and 76 assists for 104 points.
In addition to Boulier and Flygh, the Yale coaching staff also includes Rob Morgan, who returns for his second season as associate head coach.
