Juliano Pagliero Joins Holy Cross Hockey Coaching Staff

One of Juliano Pagliero's first duties as an assistant coach at Holy Cross was recruiting at the Beantown Classic in Marlborough, Mass.

Juliano Pagliero has been hired to replace Jason Guerriero as an assistant coach for the Holy Cross hockey team. Pagliero, a former Niagara University goaltender and Utica College assistant coach joins Paul Pearl's staff at Holy Cross.

Pagliero, a native of Calgary, Alberta, played for Niagara from 2005-2009 before playing two seasons of professional hockey in Europe. He was an assistant coach at Division III Utica the past two seasons. Paul Pearl had to find a replacement for Guerriero, a former Northeastern forward, who left Holy Cross to take a similar position at Yale, the defending national champions.

Jason Smith, a Salem State graduate, is the other assistant coach under Pearl. The West Yarmouth, Mass. native played one season at UMass-Amherst before transferring to Salem State. He played three seasons for the Vikings under head coach Bill O'Neill, a former Boston University Terrier.

Both Smith and Pagliero were seen recruiting at the recently completed Beantown Summer Classic in Marlborough, Mass.
