He's been a part of three championship programs and now Kevin Moore is set to join the College of St. Scholastica (CSS) as the new men's hockey head coach. He said was interested him in the position was the city of Duluth.

"When I went up to Duluth, it just blew me away with kind of the combination of the city feel, but also you could outdoorsy things. I love winter surfing, like that was attractive," he explained. "I knew about CSS through Adrian playing against them and they always played hard. Their skating always impressed me," he added.

Moore becomes the 11th men's hockey coach taking over for Tim Madsen who stepped down in April.

Moore served as an assistant with Adrian the past two seasons. He helped the Bulldogs capture the Northern Collegiate Hockey Association (NCHA) regular season and tournament championships before the season was cut short.

Before Adrian, the New Jersey native spent two years as the Director of Hockey Operations at Princeton where the Tigers won the 2018 Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) hockey championship.

Moore says the people he's met within hockey influenced him to become a coach.

"I got into coaching because I had awesome mentors who cared about me as a person and allowed me to make connections through hockey and into life. That's the type of coach I am and I'm most excited about teaching our guys how to use the skilled they learn on the ice, the mental skills, the organizational skills and applying that to the classroom, the community, and their futures away from hockey," said Moore.

Moore was a goaltender for the University of Massachusetts graduating in 2012.

He'll take over a Saints program that went 9-17-1 overall last season.
