Rider University Ice Hockey – Broncs Tab Peter Dundovich as Goalie Coach

By: Matt Metzger

Head Coach Sean Levin has announced that Peter Dundovich has been named the new goaltenders coach of the Rider Broncs ice hockey program. Dundovich brings experience from both the NCAA and professional ranks to behind the Rider bench.

Filling the vacancy has been a top priority for Levin. During this process, it was important to find someone who fits with the team’s current identity and similar philosophies to maintain a cohesive coaching staff.

“We’ve been in search for a goalie coach since our previous coach had to step away due to family obligations,” Levin said. “We wanted to ensure we brought in someone in that fit the Rider program and the identity we’ve established. Pete comes from an excellent playing background (NCAA and Professional) and has already taken on coaching responsibility in the North American Hockey League (NAHL) and other junior programs. We think he can help develop a young goalie group and assist in the adjustment into college hockey.”

One of the biggest questions marks coming into the 2015-2016 season will directly impact the job done by Dundovich. The Broncs will be looking to replace Nate Kholodenko and Dundovich will be asked to prepare a young group of netminders.

“It’ll be very challenging to replace Nate but we think the group we have now, combined with Coach Pete, we’ll be able to continue to have stability between the pipes,” said Levin. “There will be a learning curve for our goalies since the three we have do not have any game started at the college level. However, we think we’ve boosted our defense and focused our team to be more accountable and stronger in the defensive zone.”
