DUDLEY, Mass. – Nichols College head men’s ice hockey coach Kevin Swallow has announced the addition of Adam Janecyk to his coaching staff.
Janecyk graduated from the University of Michigan this past May, where he majored in American Culture in the school of Literature, Science and Arts. Janecyk appeared in 18 games over parts of four seasons with the Wolverines, helping them to the NCAA Tournament in both the 2010-11 and 2011-12 seasons, as well as the CCHA Finals in 2012-13. Michigan posted a combined record of 89-56-15 during Janecyk’s time with the squad. As a freshman, Janecyk – who picked up his first collegiate win on December 15, 2012 against Western Michigan – received the U-M Athletic Academic Achievement award.
“We are extremely lucky to have Adam join our staff this season,” said Swallow. “He had a tremendous playing career and played for one of the greatest hockey college hockey coaches of all time, Red Berenson.”
Janecyk – who will assist primary with recruiting, defense and the goaltenders – has previously worked at Red Berenson’s hockey camp, the Michigan Goalie Academy, and LEGACY Global Sports tournaments. His father, Bob Janecyk, is a former goaltender for the Chicago Blackhawks (1983-84) and the Los Angeles Kings (1984-89), winning 43 games – including a career-high 22 with the Kings during the 1984-85 campaign.
The Bison begin defense of their Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Northeast crown on November 1 at Franklin Pierce.
