According to a press release from USA Hockey, former Alaska-Anchorage goaltender Kevin Reiter will become the organization's new goaltending coach for the US National Team Development Program in Ann Arbor, Mich.
He replaces former New Hampshire goaltender Michael Ayers who left to take an assistant coaching position at Boston College. Another former college player, Merrimack's Joe Exter, was the goaltending coach for the program prior to Ayers.
Reiter graduated from UAA in 2004 before playing professionally in various minor leagues for seven seasons. A Pittsburgh native, Reiter played for the Springfield Jr. Blues in the North American Hockey League (NAHL) before heading to Anchorage. Kevin's younger brother Kenny was the goaltender for Minnesota-Duluth's run to the 2011 NCAA National Championship.
