Co-directors of the Rhode Island Saint M’s hockey program at Mount Saint Charles Academy, Matt Plante and Devin Rask join Kirk Luedeke on the latest episode of New England Hockey Journal’s “RinkWise” podcast.
A storied high school hockey program in Woonsocket, R.I., Mount announced a major reboot in 2018, moving away from a focus on RIIL competition to create four elite age-group teams that play in a full-season academy model.
Rask and Plante, both former coaches of Connecticut’s Selects Academy at South Kent, were subsequently hired to steer the program as it set out on its new venture.
Rask serves as head coach of the U16 team, while Plante oversees the U18 group. The latter is in its first season in the Prep Hockey Conference, a newly-formed league that features six of the top school-based independent hockey programs in North America.
