Minnesota Duluth announced the hiring of Anthony Morando on Monday as the new strength and conditioning coach for the men’s and women’s hockey programs. He replaces Blake Palmer, who had been with the Bulldogs for six seasons.
Morando is the husband of U.S. National Team member Monique Lamoureux-Morando, who along with her twin sister, Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson, torched the WCHA for one season at Minnesota (2008-09) and three seasons at North Dakota (2010-2013). Morando has coached his sister-in-law, also a member of Team USA, the last three years while living in Grand Forks.
Morando, a native of Springfield, Mass., was the head strength and conditioning coach for Boston University’s men’s hockey program from 2011-15, and prior to that was a graduate assistant strength coach at Boston College from 2006-08.
