Hayley Arnold enters her first season as an assistant coach with the Franklin Pierce University women's ice hockey team in 2016-17.
A member of the program's inaugural class, Arnold (bio) returns to make her first collegiate coaching stop as an assistant with the Ravens. In her senior season of 2015-16, she became the first player in program history to earn All-Conference honors, as she was named to the All-NEHC Second Team after finishing third among league defensemen in scoring (4-18-22). At the time of her graduation, Arnold was tied for the program's all-time lead in games played (98) and also was third in program history in assists (44). Over 98 career games in crimson and grey, she tallied 12-44-56.
A leader from her first days on campus, Arnold was a two-year captain for the Ravens, and served as an alternate captain during her sophomore season as well. In the classroom, she was an ECAC East All-Academic Team selection as a junior and an NEHC All-Academic Team selection as a senior. Arnold played in every game the Ravens played over her four years as a student-athlete.
Originally from Barre, Vt., Arnold is a 2016 graduate of Franklin Pierce with a degree in marketing, is currently pursuing her master's degree at the University as well, and is working as a graduate assistant within the institution's Center for Engagement.
