HOSTED BY: SSMHA’s Andrew Dickson & John Rich  

SSMHA would like to invite all past, current and potentially interested SSMHA coaches to this presentation and open Q&A session with an esteemed hockey mind from a top US collegiate institution. This will be a great opportunity to kick off our preparation for the 2019/20 season, sharing coaching ideas, learning new concepts, as well as on and off the ice coaching philosophies from a successful, top notch College coach.   SSMHA hopes to continue this theme of providing quality on and off ice Coach Development opportunities to our coaching staff, through our continuing relationship with the Winterhawks and Highlanders AAA organizations. Admission is free. Please come prepared to actively participate in the conversation, bringing coaching questions or discussion points for Ron. Ron’s Bio: Ron Fogarty begins his sixth season as the head men’s hockey coach at Princeton. The Sarina, Ontario native has collected over 200 wins as a head coach. When hired by the Tigers in 2014, Fogarty was the leader amongst all active NCAA coaches in win percentage.  It took Fogarty just four years to turn the Tigers from worst to first, as he inherited a team that finished 12th in the league. He then built the program into the 2018 ECAC Champion. This spring, Fogarty made Princeton history as he had three undrafted free agents sign NHL contracts - on the same day nonetheless. The players were Max Véronneau with Ottawa, Ryan Kuffner with Detroit and Josh Teves with Vancouver. All three went on to make their NHL debuts that same season.  More history came when Ryan Kuffner earned his second All-American honour, becoming the first Tiger in history to earn All-American honours twice.
