St. Cloud State announced Wednesday the hiring of Nick Tomczyk as the Huskies’ new director of hockey operations and video coordinator.

Tomczyk replaces T.J. Jindra, who recently took a new job with the NHL’s Minnesota Wild.

“We are very excited to have Nick join our staff here at St. Cloud State,” Huskies coach Brett Larson said in a statement. “He brings in a wealth of hockey experience and will be a valuable addition to the Huskies’ hockey program.”

Tomczyk joins the staff at SCSU after most recently serving as a scout for the USHL’s Omaha Lancers. Prior to his time at Omaha, Tomczyk was the American scout for three seasons with the OHL’s Owen Sound Attack and served for two seasons as an assistant coach with the HoneyBaked AAA youth program out of the Detroit area.

His coaching resume also includes coaching stints with Michigan high schools De La Salle and Notre Dame Prep. Tomczyk also served as the associate head coach for Oakland’s ACHA Division I program and helped start the ACHA D-I program at Rochester College, where he also coached.

A 2004 graduate of Northern Michigan with a degree in physical education and health, Tomczyk earned his master’s degree in school administration from Saginaw Valley State in 2010. At NMU, Tomczyk served for four years as a team manager for the Wildcats hockey program.
