From 1994 to 1996, he was in charge of the International Hockey League’s Houston Aeros, making important roster decisions and assembling their coaching staff.
“Coach Dineen has a widespread knowledge of the game from many different facets and we believe he will be an asset in helping to mentor and develop the players that we bring in,” said Thunder Governor Ed Moore in a statement. “Having played, and now living in the Adirondack region, Pete’s familiarity with the team and the area made this an easy choice and we are happy to have him on board.”
Dineen played professionally for 11 seasons throughout the AHL, IHL, and NHL, and won the 1989 Calder Cup championship with the Adirondack Red Wings. He seems to be the perfect choice for this upcoming season with the Thunder!
“I am extremely excited to be joining Coach Loh and the Thunder on the bench for the upcoming season,” added Dineen. “I know firsthand what a storied hockey town Glens Falls is and I can’t wait to be a part of that excellent tradition. After my many years in the industry, coaching has always been a possible next step for me, and my family and I are thrilled it gets to start here with the Thunder.”
