Women’s Division I College Hockey: Ohio State’s Nadine Muzerall is USCHO’s 2022 Coach of the Year

Ohio State University’s Nadine Muzerall is USCHO’s Coach of the Year. When I first watched her as a player at Minnesota as the NCAA era of the sport dawned, I wouldn’t have expected to one day be typing that sentence. I’m not entirely sure why. Perhaps it is because Muzerall was the program’s first offensive star and is still its all-time leader in goals scored by a wide margin, and natural goalscorers don’t always make the best coaches. Maybe I’m comparing her to people like Courtney Kennedy and Winny Brodt-Brown, two of a number of her former teammates who also went on to make their mark in the coaching profession. Or I could be remembering the 20-year-old player who at times was more competitive than composed.
