Penn State Women’s Hockey’s Allison Coomey Joins Team USA Winter Olympics Staff

Penn State women’s hockey associate head coach Allison Coomey will serve as a team scout for the U.S. Women’s National Team during the 2022 Winter Olympics.

Even though this will be Coomey’s first Olympic Games, she previously held the same role of team scout with the U.S. at the 2019 IIHF U18 Women’s World Championship in Obihiro, Japan. The staff she is joining is led by current St. Thomas head coach Joel Johnson.

The Baldwinsville, N.Y., native is in the middle of her fifth season with Penn State after spending nine seasons with Boston University. Since arriving in Happy Valley, Coomey has helped turn the Nittany Lions into one of the best defensive teams in the country. She also received the 2019 AHCA Women’s Hockey Assistant Coach of the Year award.

Coomey is not the only Penn Stater heading to Beijing, though. Men’s hockey director of operations Alex Dawes will serve as the video coach for the U.S. Men’s National Team, and women’s hockey’s Jessica Adolfsson will join Sweden in the tournament.

The U.S. women’s national team will play its first game at 8:10 a.m. EST on Thursday, February 3, against Finland.
