Megan Myers was named the first assistant coach of the women’s ice hockey team at Becker College in June of 2015. A former player of Head Coach Eliza Kelley, Myers comes to Becker with an impressive hockey resume at both the DIII and professional level.
“I am thrilled to have Megan join our coaching staff. Megan is an incredible hockey player, with a wealth of knowledge and a contagious work ethic. I know that she will be a great asset for Becker, leading our players on and off the ice. There’s no better person to join our staff”, said Coach Kelley.
Myers played her collegiate hockey at Utica College (2011-14), where she netted 74 goals and 69 assists for a total of 143 career points in 104 games, including four post-season appearances. Myers’ impressive offensive skill earned her a spot in the NCAA record books for career goals (22nd all-time). She held spots on the ECAC-West All-Conference Team for four consecutive seasons and was named a CCM All-American in 2013. As a senior at Utica, Myers was named a team captain, where she helped lead the team to a 17-9-1 season and an ECAC-WEST Final Four appearance.
As a post-graduate, Myers continued on to the professional ranks, playing in the Canadian Women’s Hockey League (CWHL). She was drafted in the 12th round by the Boston Blades. Myers scored in her first professional game, a 5-3 victory over Boston University (10/11/14). The Blades continued their winning ways, placing first in the CWHL regular season and defeating Montreal in overtime of the Clarkson Cup finals. In addition to her playing career, Myers has coaching experience with all levels of youth hockey as an employee of Can Am Hockey and other youth organizations.
“I couldn’t be more excited to start my coaching career with the inaugural program at Becker College. I am honored to be coaching alongside Eliza Kelley, who has been a longtime mentor, coach and friend to me. It is a true privilege to be coaching among the ranks of Becker’s excelling athletic programs and I cannot wait for the season to begin”, said Myers.
