Owner, Shane Madolora, has over 17 years of playing and coaching with elite championship winning programs at the highest levels of hockey in the United States and Europe. Shane has played tier 2 junior hockey in the North American Hockey League and tier 1 junior hockey United States Hockey League. Shane was able to move on after playing for consecutive championship winning teams in St. Louis and Omaha to play NCAA Division One at Rochester Institute of Technology. Shane played at RIT from 2009-2012 and was part of the Tigers team that made a run to the 2010 Frozen Four in Detroit. Upon graduation Shane embarked on a four year journey in professional hockey that would include stops in the East Coast Hockey League, Central Hockey League, Ligue Magnus (France top league), Seri-A (Italian top league), Elite Ice Hockey League (United Kingdoms top league). Shane also had opportunities with San Jose Sharks NHL rookie camp, Rochester Americans AHL training camp, and Oklahoma City Barons AHL training camp throughout his professional career.

Upon retiring from playing overseas Shane began his coaching career full time. He was able to obtain a position back at his alma mater RIT, as a NCAA Division One assistant coach with the women’s hockey program. Shane coached there for three years with main focus on goaltenders, defensemen, video break down, special teams, and skill and fundamental development with players. After three seasons at RIT Shane was able to accept a new challenge in junior hockey which began as an Associate Head Coach and Director of Player Personnel with the Rochester Jr. Monarchs USPHL NCDC team, which later lead to Shane being named Head Coach part way through the season.
