MUSKEGON, Mich. — Former NHL player and University of Connecticut All-American Todd Krygier has been named the Muskegon Lumberjacks’ new head coach.

Krygier, 47, played 543 games and scored 100 points during his 12-year NHL career while playing for the Hartford Whalers, Anaheim Mighty Ducks and Washington Capitals.  He retired in 2000 and began coaching.

“I am honored and humbled to have this opportunity, and I am thankful to (Lumberjacks’ President) Tim Taylor and the new ownership team at Muskegon,” Krygier said in a Lumberjacks press release.

This news follows the announcement Tuesday that the team was being sold to the New York-based group Clearview Capital Management.
