Matt Lindsay begins his fourth season with the Nittany Lion varsity program for the 2015-16 season. Lindsay has 14 years of college hockey coaching experience.
Linsday plays a vital role in Nittany Lion recruiting and gameplanning. Lindsay’s connections in multiple leagues spanning North America allow Penn State to recruit the best student-athletes to Hockey Valley.
AT PENN STATE
During the 2014-15 season, Lindsay helped guide the Nittany Lions to a record season in terms of overall wins (18), conference wins (10) and developing Penn State’s first NHL player, Casey Bailey.
For the 2013-14 campaign, Lindsay aided the Nittany Lions during the Big Ten Conference’s first season. Penn State, which faced seven NCAA tournament teams and three Frozen Four participants, capped its season with a 2-1 double-overtime victory against Michigan in the Big Ten quarterfinals.
In 2012-13, the assistant coach helped lead the Nittany Lions to a 13-14-0 record during their inaugural NCAA Division I season. Lindsay helped guide Penn State to several marquee victories, including wins against three future Big Ten opponents (Michigan State, Ohio State, Wisconsin).
From 2007-11, Lindsay served as an assistant coach at Princeton, where he helped guide the Tigers to two NCAA tournament appearances (2008, 2009) and the 2008 ECAC Hockey title.
PRIOR COLLEGE COACHING
Before his time at Princeton, Lindsay spent the 2006-07 season as an assistant coach at Robert Morris.
With the Colonials, Lindsay served as the team’s video coordinator and helped with recruiting. He joined Robert Morris’ staff following one season as a volunteer assistant coach at Colorado College, where he handled video, pre-scouting and one-ice responsibilities.
Before Colorado College, Lindsay served three seasons (2002-05) as an assistant coach at Hobart College and one season (2001-02) in the same capacity at Utica College.
Lindsay, who graduated from Williams College in 2001, earned the William E. McCormick “Coaches” Award as a senior. The award is presented to a member of the hockey team who best exemplifies leadership, loyalty, a selfless devotion to the team, a youthful delight in the game of hockey and, above all, a strong commitment to community service.
