FREDONIA, N.Y. — Anthony Walsh was named the Fredonia State men’s hockey assistant coach beginning with the 2021-2022 season.
Walsh competed for four years as a member of Yale University’s men’s varsity hockey team where he led the Bulldogs as the team’s sole captain during his senior season. He was awarded the Malcolm G. Chase award by the coaching staff, which is “given to the member of the Yale Hockey Team who, through sportsmanship, spirit, and ability, has best served the finest traditions of Yale Hockey.”
Walsh graduated from Yale in the spring of 2019, with a degree in political science.
Following his graduation, Walsh remained with the Bulldogs for the 2019-2020 season where he worked as the program’s Director of Hockey Operations. While serving as the Director of Operations for the Bulldogs, he also worked as a skills coach for two Connecticut-based youth hockey programs. With the onset of the pandemic and no season being held for the Bulldogs during the 2020-2021 season, Walsh moved back home to Chicago to pursue a master’s degree in Sports Administration from Northwestern University, while also working as the lead USHL scout for Neutral Zone, an amateur scouting company.
Prior to competing for Yale University, Walsh played for Green Bay and Sioux City in the USHL, serving as the captain of the Gamblers for the 2014-2015 season.
Walsh succeeds R.J. Gicewicz who served as Meredith’s assistant coach during the 2019-2020 season.
