A former player with the program, Scott Moser is in his first season back on campus as an assistant coach with the Canisius College hockey team.
“It’s great for the program to be able to add an alum in Scott to the staff,” said Canisius head coach Dave Smith. “Scott has been associated with the team for nearly a decade and he will be able to draw from his experiences as a student-athlete at Canisius and continue to raise the bar for the program. It’s an exhilarating time for the Western New York hockey community with the addition of the HARBORCENTER and as a native of the area and alum of Canisius, it’s great to see that excitement that Scott will be able to bring to the program.”
Moser returns to Buffalo after spending the 2013-14 season at St. Lawrence as Director of Hockey Operations with the women’s team. With the Saints, Moser coordinated video breakdown, while also helping the coaching staff with scouting and practice sessions. In addition, Moser served as Assistant Golf Coach in his one year at St. Lawrence.
A two-sport athlete at Canisius, Moser captained the Griffs during the 2011-12 campaign. He appeared in 134 career games with 59 points, 23 goals and 36 assists. A two-time recipient of the team’s Dr. David B. Dietz Award as a player who shows both athletic and scholastic dedication, Moser was a nominee for the Hockey Humanitarian Award in 2011 and the Derek Hines Unsung Hero Award in 2012. He was also a four-year letterwinner with the golf program at Canisius.
Moser earned his bachelor’s degree in management and marketing from Canisius in 2012 and his master’s in sport administration in 2014. He was a four-time selection to the Atlantic Hockey All-Academic Team and a three-time MAAC All-Academic Team honoree.
