PLYMOUTH, Mich. – USA Hockey announced today that Greg Moore (Lisbon, Maine) has been named a head coach at its National Team Development Program. Moore will become the 17th head coach in NTDP history and will lead the U.S. National Under-17 Team for the 2023-24 campaign.
“We are excited and fortunate to welcome Greg back to USA Hockey,” said Scott Monaghan (Ho-Ho-Kus, N.J.), USA Hockey’s assistant executive director for the NTDP and USA Hockey Arena. “He brings diverse experience and we know he’ll be a great fit as a head coach in our program.”
Moore returns to the organization after spending the last three seasons (2020-23) as head coach of the AHL’s Toronto Marlies, where he helped lead the team to the 2023 North Division title.
Prior to his professional coaching debut, Moore was the bench boss for the USHL’s Chicago Steel for two seasons (2018-20), including an appearance in the 2019 Clark Cup Final.
“It’s a privilege and an honor to be named a head coach at the National Team Development Program,” Moore said. “I’m thankful to be able to continue the tremendous coaching tradition at the NTDP and I can’t wait to get started with the extremely talented group of incoming U17 players.”
Before leading Chicago, Moore began his coaching career as assistant coach at the NTDP for three seasons (2015-18), where he helped lead Team USA to a gold medal at the 2017 IIHF Under-18 Men’s World Championship and a championship finish at the 2017 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge.
Moore played two seasons (2002-02) at the NTDP and capped off his time helping Team USA earn a gold medal at the 2002 IIHF Under-18 Men’s World Championship.
He went on to a four-year collegiate career at the University of Maine (2002-06) where he was a Hobey Baker Memorial Award finalist and served as team captain as a senior. During his time with the Black Bears, Moore again represented the U.S. on the international stage and helped Team USA win its first-ever gold medal in the IIHF World Junior Championship in 2004.
Moore spent the majority of his nine-year professional playing career in the AHL, competing in 377 regular-season games and 31 playoff contests. He also appeared in 10 NHL games and spent most of his final four campaigns playing in Germany’s top professional league.
