SAULT STE. MARIE — The Lakers have found their new assistant coach.
Zach Cisek, a former goaltender at Michigan State, was announced today as the replacement for Rich Metro on the coaching staff.
Cisek spent two seasons at MSU before graduating in 2015. He then went on to Miami University, where he served as a graduate assistant under Enrico Blasi for two seasons while completing a Master’s degree in Kinesiology and Health.
Following his time in Oxford, Ohio, the Canton, Michigan native served under former Lakers coach and current Notre Dame bench boss Jeff Jackson. During his lone season with the Fighting Irish, Cisek worked greatly with goaltender Cale Morris, whose 1.94 goals against average and .944 save percentage earned him the Mike Richter Award as the top college hockey goaltender in the nation.
