Kacy Ambroz has announced her resignation as the Boston Blades head coach. Ambroz officially took over head coaching duties for the Boston Blades on Jan. 11, replacing coach Casey Brugman. Ambroz was the Blades’ third head coach in the last two seasons.
“I learned a lot this year working for the Blades,” Ambrose shared in the team’s press release. “It was a great experience being in the CWHL and working with athletes post-college. Traveling with this team to China and cities around Canada to coach were highlights for me. It is very inspiring to see how much work is being poured into women’s hockey by players and staff around the world to grow the game.”
Ambroz, a Minnesota Whitecaps alumna, is returning to her home state to become a teacher. She played her NCAA hockey at the University of Minnesota-Duluth.
Blades’ general manager Jessica Martino must find a replacement for Ambroz after tonight’s Prospect Camp in Winthrop, MA. The Blades are welcoming players of all skill levels and degrees of experience at the camp. Martino has a solid core — including Lauren Dahm, Kate Leary, Dru Burns, Meghan Grieves, and Megan Myers — to build around, but Boston needs to find a way to inject more skill into its lineup.
