Hartford, Conn.
- Scott Munroe has been hired as a Trinity men's ice hockey assistant coach, after most recently coaching the goaltenders for the Moncton Wildcats of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.  Munroe played NCAA Division I hockey at the University of Alabama-Huntsville from 2002-2006 where he appeared in 99 games and holds the all-time career save percentage record (.918). He also holds season records for games played (31), total minutes (1812:54), shots faced (1,084) and total saves (993). Munroe was named as the College Hockey America (CHA) Co-Player of the Year following his senior season and as the CHA Rookie of the Year as a freshman.  

After graduating with a bachelor's degree in business and signing a professional contract with the Philadelphia Flyers, Munroe played in the American Hockey League for seven seasons and overseas in the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL) for one. In June of 2015, he announced his retirement from professional hockey and signed on as an assistant coach for Moncton where he has coached the last two seasons. 

Munroe replaces Paul Kirtland, who left Trinity to take an assistant job with the Dubuque Fighting Saints of the United States Hockey League. He joins a Trinity staff that has reached the national championship game twice in the past three years.
