Anzalone lands on his feet in the ECHL

The Johnstown (Penn.) Chiefs of the ECHL announced today at a press conference that Frank Anzalone is the teams new head coach and sixth in team history.

The 51-year-old Anzalone comes to the Chiefs after spending the last four seasons with the Lake Superior State Lakers, his second head coaching stint with the school.

Anzalone, a Brooklyn N.Y., native, is no stranger to the ECHL. He has been behind the benches of the former Nashville Knights (1991-92), Roanoke Express (1993-98) and Pee Dee Pride (1999-00). His career ECHL coaching record is 269-183-41 (.587), including six playoff appearances in eight seasons.

He also has American Hockey League coaching experience with the Newmarket Saints (1990-91) and captured the Atlantic division title with the Lowell Lock Monsters in 1998-99.

Anzalone will reside in Johnstown with his wife, Theresa, and son, Francis.

You mean to say that Michigonians actually care about hockey? I thought hockey was a Canadian thing.

No, hockey is actually a world thing. And we are Michiganders too.
