Information ▲ Marcou Returns To Amherst As Assistant Coach | Worry The Triangle

The UMass hockey crew introduced immediately that former Minuteman James Marcou has been added to Greg Carvel’s workers as a volunteer assistant coach.  Marcou was a star participant for UMass from 2007-2010.   Throughout his time in Amherst he was a 2nd Group All-American, All-Hockey East choice, and a Hobey Baker nominee.  Regardless of solely enjoying three years Marcou is fourth all-time in scoring in this system’s historical past with 130 factors in 111 video games.  His 96 profession assists is greater than every other participant who suited up for this system.

It is a residence run (what’s the hockey equal, a breakaway objective?) transfer by Carvel.  Marcou is seen as an up-and-comer within the teaching ranks.  Since a critical neck harm derailed his professional desires in 2011 he has turn into a trainer of the sport.  Most lately he was an assistant coach for Milton Academy the place he earned excessive reward.  Being listed as a beneficiant 5’8” Marcou couldn’t depend on ability alone when he performed, although he was extraordinarily proficient.  However he actually was in a position to maximize that expertise because of his intelligence and imaginative and prescient on the ice.  It’s not a shock that he’s been in a position to repurpose that data into teaching.  UMass was not the one DI program that was pursuing Marcou for a place this offseason.  However his first alternative was to return to his alma mater.

This transfer will likely be a preferred one with followers who keep in mind Marcou as a dynamic participant who introduced the capability Mullins crowds to their ft typically throughout his profession.  Actually, this system has not been the identical since he turned professional after the 2010-11 season, together with Casey Wellman and Matt Irwin.  There’s an excellent likelihood he would’ve been a Hobey Baker finalist if he had returned for his closing 12 months.  Now followers will have the ability to see him kick off his school teaching profession.  Although Marcou left after his junior 12 months, he did full his diploma from the Isenberg Faculty of Administration.

Lastly, this rent goes a great distance to assist rebuild the connection with the participant alumni which had suffered beneath the earlier teaching administration.  Carvel’s rent was actually seen as an opportunity to begin over when it got here to participant alumni engagement and within the brief time he’s been within the place he seems to have made it a precedence of his.  It will assist additional that trigger.

Welcome again Marcooooouuuuuu!

The NHL Draft is that this weekend.  There’s just one UMass connection that appears more likely to hear his title known as and that’s goaltending recruit Matt Murray.  NHL Central Scouting ranks Murray because the twenty fifth finest North American goaltender which interprets to a couple of sixth or seventh spherical draft decide.

I nonetheless suppose there’s an opportunity defenseman Callum Fryer will get chosen this weekend.  He was on Central Scouting’s checklist in the beginning of the season however dropped off of their more moderen rankings.  I actually don’t know why as he put in a really strong rookie season towards Hockey East competitors.  He’s already on the NHL’s radar since he attended Maple Leafs improvement camp previously so he could in the end turn into a draft decide.
