ASTON, Pa.-D3hockey.com has learned that Neumann will elevate assistant coach Matt Tendler to the position of men’s head coach for the 2015-16 season. The hire comes on the heels of the departure Dominick Dawes, who left after a seven-year stint with the Knights to build a new program at Stevenson.

Since his arrival on the Philadelphia-area institution’s campus in 2008, the 28-year old Tendler has been synonymous with Neumann University hockey. Tendler appeared in 35 games for Neumann in his career, and had his name cemented in college hockey history forever as a backup to netminder Ross McKinnon on Neumann’s 2008-2009 national championship team. Following his collegiate career, Tendler signed a contract with the American Hockey League’s Hershey Bears as backup to Dany Sabourin.

When his time in the professional ranks ran out, Tendler re-joined the Knights as the top assistant coach in the 2013-14 and 2014-15 seasons. Away from his collegiate coaching duties, Tendler operates the Goalie Doctor goaltending school, and has assisted at camps alongside former Philadelphia Flyers goaltender Bernie Parent.

The Knights open their season on October 30th, when they play host to Daniel Webster.
