Feaster 1st woman coach on U.S. junior national hockey team

Darren Dreger talks with Keith Jones and Liam McHugh about when the NHL might consider resuming its season.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Theresa Feaster of Providence is the first woman on the coaching staff for the U.S. national junior team as video coach, a move announced Wednesday by USA Hockey.

She joins Ted Donato, Kris Mayotte and Steve Miller assisting Nate Leaman, who is also the head coach at Providence. That’s where where Feaster is heading into her ninth season and fifth as director of men’s hockey operations. She started as a graduate assistant, then became one of two women working full time for a Division I men’s hockey team in 2016.

“We’re extremely fortunate to have an experienced coaching and support staff in place,” said John Vanbiesbrouck, general manager of the national junior team and assistant executive director of hockey operations for USA Hockey. “It’s a group that brings varied experience and perspective along with a winning pedigree.”
