He is the first addition to new Wolf Pack head coach Keith McCambridge’s staff. It’s safe to assume that he won’t be the last.
Mormina spent last season as an assistant coach at Mercyhurst University, where he was involved with the team’s defensemen and overall player development. Three of his blueliners averaged more than half-a-point per game.
The 35-year-old spent 11 seasons playing professional hockey, mostly in the AHL. He did skate in one NHL game for the Carolina Hurricanes in the 2007-08 season, recording four hits and one shot on goal.
