American International College has named Evan Moorhouse as its director of hockey operations.
“Evan has had a seamless transition to our staff,” AIC coach Eric Lang said in a statement. “He has a tremendous knowledge of Western Massachusetts hockey, a great hockey background and understands his role in operations. Evan is very talented in so many areas and he will have a bright future in this industry. We are ecstatic he’s on board with AIC hockey.”
Moorhouse is a 2016 graduate of nearby Westfield State, where he earned a Bachelor of Science in business management. He was a goaltender for the Owls’ hockey program, in addition to being a four-year member of the baseball team.
Upon graduation, he served as an assistant coach with the Westfield State hockey program, focusing on goaltending and daily operations within the program. Beginning in 2013, he joined Stick Time Sports in Agawam, working in hockey operations and as a goaltending consultant. His responsibilities included event and employee management, scheduling and on-ice instruction and evaluation.
Moorhouse’s father, Donnie, is a 1987 graduate of AIC, and was an assistant coach with the program from 1987 to 1990.
“I am extremely fortunate for the opportunity to join this historic hockey program,” Moorhouse added. ”Yellow Jacket tradition runs deep in my family — both my parents are graduates of AIC, which has made me feel connected with the school for a long time. I look forward to being able to contribute to an already remarkable staff while also absorbing some of the tremendous hockey knowledge this experience has to offer.
“It is an exciting time for AIC hockey, and I am thankful and proud to be a part of it moving forward.”
