St. Scholastica Tabs Kevin Moore As New Head Coach of Men’s Hockey Team

Moore spent the past two seasons in the NCHA as an assistant at Adrian College.

DULUTH, Minn. – Three months ago, Tim Madsen resigned as head coach of the St. Scholastica men’s hockey team. The Saints began a nationwide search for their next bench boss and found their man who has some ties to the east coast.

CSS announced Thursday that Kevin Moore is the new head coach of the men’s hockey team. Moore spent the past two seasons in the NCHA as an assistant at Adrian College. He says he was definitely attracted by the prospects of moving to Duluth.

“I’m a very outdoorsy person having been up there. Just having that mix of a city feel and the outdoors. I know a lot about the CSS hockey team having competed against them the last few years. And I felt like they were a great skating kind of skilled team that could really turn it around pretty quickly,” Moore said.

The next challenge for Moore will be keeping his team positive as they navigate the issues caused by the pandemic.

“It will give us more time to develop our relationship away from the rink more if we get delayed. And if we don’t, then maybe there will be a new set of challenges. Certainly, I want them to be positive. I want them to attack whatever gets thrown at us in the future here,” said Moore.

Moore is a 2012 graduate of the University of Massachusetts where he played goalie and followed that with coaching stints at New Hampshire and Princeton, before landing with Adrian.
