Seth appert medium

Seth Appert enters his first season as the head coach with the NTDP and will coach the U.S. National Under-18 Team at the NTDP in 2017-18.

He spent the previous 11 seasons as the head coach of the Rensselaer men’s hockey team where he led the Engineers to the 2011 NCAA Tournament and the team’s highest ECAC finish in more than 20 years in 2012-13 when RPI finished second in the league.

In 2017 he served as an assistant coach for the U.S. Men’s National Team at the 2017 IIHF Men’s World Championship and was also an assistant coach for the 2017 U.S. Men’s National Under-18 Team that won the gold medal at the 2017 IIHF Under-18 Men’s World Championship.

A former president of the American Hockey Coaches Association, Appert spent the nine seasons prior to taking over the head coaching reigns at RPI as an assistant coach at the University of Denver where he helped lead the Pioneers to a pair of NCAA titles, three WCHA playoff championships and two WCHA regular-season titles.

In his 20 years in the collegiate coaching ranks, Appert has recruited and helped develop 13 All-Americans, 37 all-league selections, four Players of the Year, four Hobey Baker Finalists and 23 players who have gone on to play in the NHL.

His other USA Hockey coaching experience includes two stints as head coach (2008, 2011) and one as assistant coach (2007) of the U.S. National Under-18 Select Team that competed in the Ivan Hlinka Memorial Cup.

A collegiate netminder, Appert was a four-year letterwinner at Ferris State University from 1992-96. He owns a bachelor’s degree in public relations from Ferris State and earned his master’s degree in management from the University of Denver in 1999.

Appert and his wife Jill have two daughters, Addi and Campbell.
