GRAND FORKS, N.D. (NORTH DAKOTA ATHLETICS) – 

Former championship goalie Karl Goehring was officially announced as the new hockey assistant coach by UND head coach Brad Berry Tuesday. Goehring (UND, 2001) returns to his alma mater after a two-year stint in the Tampa Bay Lightning system with the Syracuse Crunch (AHL).
 
“Absolutely thrilled to be coming back to UND, a place that has given me so many opportunities,” Goehring said. “I am honored to be part of the hockey program at UND again and I am excited to get started with my new role.”
 
Goehring left North Dakota following the 2016-17 season to spend two years with the Crunch as their goaltenders coach and video coach. Prior to that, the Apple Valley, Minn., native helped mentor several successful goaltenders at UND serving as a volunteer goaltending coach, including four starters in a seven-year stretch with three of them dressing in the NHL at some point this season: (Aaron Dell- San Jose, Cam Johnson- New Jersey, Zane McIntyre- Boston)
 
“We are extremely excited to have Karl back with our family at North Dakota,” Berry said. “Karl made a tremendous impact in our program previously here as a player and a coach. He exudes all the qualities of our strong culture– tremendous work ethic, high compete level, team first approach, outstanding professionalism and possesses great communication skills. He is a true “Everydayer”. We look forward to Karl adding to the tradition here at North Dakota.”
 
Goehring got his coaching start with the Syracuse Crunch following his record-breaking career in the crease. He enjoyed an eight-year professional career, mostly with the Crunch, retiring with the franchise’s record for career wins (78) and single-season marks with lowest goals against average (2.12) and highest save percentage (.930).
 
He was a two-time All-American at UND, leading the Fighting Sioux to back-to-back national title games in 2000 and 2001. He was 19-6-4 with a sparkling 1.89 GAA and a program-record eight shutouts in guiding UND to its seventh NCAA championship in 2000. He still owns program records in career wins (80), winning percentage (.765) and shutouts (15).  
 
Goehring fills out a coaching staff that is made up of all UND alums (Berry, ’02, associate head coach Dane Jackson, ’92).
 
His family includes his wife Laura and their daughters Halle (14) and Lily (13).
