MEET COACH SCOTT NICHOL

Posted: 12th April 2015 by sprociou09 in Uncategorized

Scott Nichol returns in 2015-2016 as head coach of the ’03 Rochester Monarchs AAA team and also will serve as the 2015-2016 ’04 Rochester Monarchs AAA head coach.

Coach Nichol enters his second season as the Nashville Predators Director of Player Development in 2014-15 after completing a 20-season professional career in May 2013. In his role, Nichol is responsible for following and evaluating prospects drafted by Nashville, in addition to working with players on all levels throughout the United States, Canada and Europe. He assists them with their maturation process into NHL players by focusing on nutrition, off-ice workouts and conditioning, practice habits and game performance.
Nichol
Nichol, who played 209 regular season games (24g-23a-47pts) for the Predators from 2005-09, spent two decades as a player from 1994-95 to 2012-13, posting 127 points (56g-71a) and 916 penalty minutes in 662 NHL games with Buffalo, Calgary, Chicago, Nashville, San Jose and St. Louis and 211 points (90g-121a) and 1,029 penalty minutes in 398 games at the American and International Hockey League level with Rochester, Detroit and Milwaukee. He helped the San Jose Sharks advance to back-to-back Western Conference Finals in 2010 and 2011, and won the AHL’s Calder Cup as a member of the Rochester Americans in 1996.

Perennially one of the NHL’s top face-off men, the Edmonton, Alta., native led the League in face-off efficiency during the 2009-10 season with San Jose, and in 2007-08 with Nashville. He also holds a Nashville franchise record for shorthanded goals in a game/period with two in the second period of a 5-2 victory at St. Louis on Jan. 19, 2008.

Buffalo’s ninth selection, 272nd overall (11th round), in the 1993 Entry Draft was coached by Predators Hockey Operations Advisor Brent Peterson with the Portland Winterhawks from 1992-94, posting 157 points (71g-86a) and 290 penalty minutes in 132 Western Hockey League games.

Nichol and his wife Christie, sons Hayden and Foster, and daughter Sophia reside in Rochester, N.Y. Follow him on Twitter @RealScottNichol.
