Former Gophers womenâÄôs hockey player Nadine Muzerall will join the Minnesota coaching staff as an assistant coach. Muzerall played for the Gophers from 1997-2001, and was a two-time All-American in that time.

âÄúAs an alum, I feel a tremendous pride in being given the opportunity to coach college hockey at the University of Minnesota,âÄù Muzerall said in a release.

âÄúThere couldn’t be a better place for me to coach a game I love, for a team I have honored since the beginning, with coaches for whom I have the utmost respect, and in a place I have felt as home since I was 18.âÄù

Muzerall helped lead Minnesota to the AWCHA National Championship in 2000. She is the Gophers’ all-time leader in career goals scored with 139 and is third on the all-time points list with 235.

Muzerall’s previous coaching experience came at a boarding school for high schoolers, Northfield Mount Herman school in Massuchussetts. She coached the girls varsity team from 2002-09.

âÄúShe will be a great addition to our staff and program,” head coach Brad Frost said in a release. “Nadine brings a wealth of experience both as a player and coach. Our players will love learning from her as she brings a tremendous passion for Gopher hockey and the University of Minnesota.âÄù
