|Title:||Asst. Men's Ice Hockey Coach (Goaltending)|
Former Merrimack goaltender Jim Healey enters his fourth season as the goaltending coach at Merrimack College.
Healey has helped instruct all of Merrimack's netminders over the past three years, working with former All-American Joe Cannata ('12) and the current crop of Merrimack goaltenders.
Under Healey's guidance, Cannata became the all-time winningest goaltender in Merrimack’s Division I history. Meanwhile, Cannata's heir apparent, Sam Marotta, posted strong numbers in his first season as a starter in 2012-13.
Following Healey coming aboard in mid-January of 2010, Merrimack
closed the regular season with an 8-4-2 record, which included two
shutouts from Cannata and only four games that saw the Warriors
surrender three or more goals.
Healey, who was named to Merrimack’s All-Decade Team, appeared in 91 games for the Warriors from 2003-07, backstopping Merrimack to a playoff appearance in 2003-04, his freshman season. He was named to the Hockey East All-Rookie team in 2004 and to the All-Academic team in 2006. Healey was voted Merrimack’s Most Valuable Player in 2007 by his teammates.
