The East Grand Forks boys hockey team has been on the search for their new head coach and they have found their man.

And for Green Wave fans, he is a familiar face.

Tyler Palmiscno will be the next EGF head coach.

Why does this name sound familiar?

Well he was the head coach that lead the Green Wave to back to back state championships in 2014 and 2015 before taking three seasons off.

He will now be back behind the bench for East Grand Forks and is looking forward to coaching once again at the varsity level.
