The upcoming season marks another season of firsts for Pro Crease Goaltending as Founder Jared Waimon continues in his role as Assistant Coach at Quinnipiac while Head Instructor Matt Michno joins UCONN as their goaltending coach as the Huskies enter their third season in Hockey East. Michno will keep busy with sophomore Adam Huska who was selected by the New York Rangers in the 2015 draft while Waimon will lead the effort on behalf of sophomore Andrew Shortridge and freshman Keith Petruzelli who was a 2017 draft pick of the Detroit Red Wings. Also joining the collegiate coaching ranks is senior instructor Scott Munroe who was named assistant coach at Trinity College (Trinity is the premier team in Division III having been NESCAC champions the past twoconsecutive seasons and playing in the DIII National Championship in 2015 and 2017). Scott has either coached or played at every top professional level including the NHL, AHL and KHL.
Pro Crease's elite staff enable Waimon, Michno and Munroe to continue in their roles at Pro Crease while also taking on these prestigious DI and DIII positions. "With the exception of occasionally joining the team on the road, the collegiate practice schedule does not conflict with our coaching and leadership roles at Pro Crease," says Waimon. Coaching and the exposure that comes from being at these elite schools also enables Pro Crease to implement the latest techniques and strategies into their student-directed programs.
