Today, second-year RMU women’s hockey coach Paul Colontino joins Matt and Larry to discuss his growing program. The Colonials achieved new highs last year, winning their first-ever CHA conference title and establishing a new team record for wins in a season. For that effort, Colontino was named national coach of the year by USCHO.com and earned similar accolades from the CHA.
This year, RMU is on track for another strong finish. Matt and Larry ask Colontino about his coaching philosophy, trying to increase awareness for NCAA hockey in the Pittsburgh area and how he plans to continue to develop his program in years to come.
Later in the program, Matt and Larry deliver their weekly Local Hockey Report, highlighting regional pro, college and junior hockey teams. They also address the most surprising teams in the first two weeks of the NHL season.
