Pinkerton's Kesselring to coach at New Hampton
After spending 10 seasons on the bench with the Pinkerton of Derry ice hockey team, Casey Kesselring has moved on to become head coach of the New Hampton School men's ice hockey program. Kesselring will replace four-year head coach Matt Wright, who led the Huskies to a NEPSAC title game in 2011. School officials made the announcement Friday night.
A former Division I and professional hockey player, Kesselring built the Pinkerton program into a perennial playoff contender and won states in 2009 and 2012.
"We are extremely lucky to get someone like Casey here at New Hampton School," Jamie Arsenault, New Hampton director of athletics, said. "With his knowledge of the game, passion for kids, ties in the hockey community, and enthusiasm for helping young men grow on and off the ice, he's an ideal fit for New Hampton School."
