Introducing TCE Skills Director Matt Haney

Many of you have probably seen TCE’s new Skills Director, Matt Haney, on the ice. Familiar to some of the skaters from coaching in the Dedicated Hockey program, Matt is running the curriculum for our Wednesday night skills sessions. 

Matt is a Tri-City alumnus having played for the club during his youth hockey years. His favorite TCE memory is getting the game winning goal in the game that took his 14U team to Nationals. Matt is hoping to help the 16U Blue team on their road to nationals as their assistant coach this season.

In addition to playing for Tri-City for over five years, Matt’s hockey credentials extended into his college years, playing for Robert Morris University’s ACHA Division 1 team. Loyalty to the club brings Matt back, “After gaining more experience from playing, I decided to take some of my knowledge and pass it down to other hockey players.” Matt brings a special skill set for defense as he has been a defenseman for his entire playing career. Welcome Matt!
