Coach Nick Fornelius wrapped up his collegiate hockey run with the successful University of Utah Men's Skatin' Utes Hockey Team this season. Nick led the Utes as an alternate captain and team leader for three of his seasons with the team. Coach Fornelius was part of the inaugural Division I season for the Ute squad, a first for a Utah University, and part of the multi-season league champion Skatin’ Utes. Nick had a celebrated high school hockey experience and he is a former Utah Golden Eagle player and was part of the team that had multiple appearances in National Title Games representing the Eagles. The opportunity to give back to the program that paved the way for him and his former teammates has been an honor for him. Nick participated on the Utah Union Travel team, a collection of exceptionally skilled youth players that captured numerous tournament titles in the mountain west region. Known for his blistering speed, work ethic, unyielding energy and finesse we expect to see Nick impart his winning attitude, discipline and hockey fundamentals to the Eagles 14U division players. Nick brings a supporting cast of assistant coaches who also participated on the successful Skatin’ Utes team. They plan to work collectively to prepare the 14s for the next level of play.
