Manchester Monarchs head coach Mark Morris, Merrimack assistant Phil Roy [a former Clarkson player], DU assistant coach Derek Lalonde and Hobart head coach Mark Taylor are mentioned in a recent article as candidates for the Clarkson University head coaching possition.
"I'm from Brasher Falls, that's always home for me and always will be," said Lalonde, who confirmed he has applied for the position. "I grew up with (Clarkson) in our backyard. No doubt it excites me."
While at DU, Lalonde has been credited with the development of goaltenders Peter Mannino, Marc Cheverie and Freshman Sam Brittain. He also spent countless hours on the road helping assemble the #1 ranked recruiting class in the country last season that included Jason Zucker, Sam Brittain, David Makowski, Nick Shore and Beau Bennett.
