Steven Palmer has joined the University of Denver hockey staff as the volunteer assistant coach. Palmer joins the seven-time NCAA champions after a 13-year professional playing career in Europe and four-year career at Clarkson University.

Palmer's responsibilities at DU will include assisting in practice planning, breaking down and analyzing game video, individual teaching and on-ice skill development.

"We are excited to add Steven Palmer to our coaching staff," Coach Gwozdecky said. "For the first time in several years, we are filling the volunteer coaching position with a person who has major college and professional playing experience. Steven will do a tremendous job with 1-on-1 player development and special teams."

Palmer netted 131 career points at Clarkson from 1992-96 and enjoyed a 13-year professional career which ended after the 2008-09 season with EV Duisburg and Kassel of the German Elite League. He was a two-time Academic All-American and Rhodes Scholarship nominee at Clarkson. Palmer earned his B.S. degree in engineering and management.

Almost a Rhodes Scholar and majored in Engineering & Management at Clarkson. Obviously one smart cookie.
