Scott Monaghan is serving as the general manager of the U.S. Under-18 Men’s National Team for the 24th time at the 2024 IIHF Under-18 Men's World Championship. Monaghan has been on staff for all 11 gold medal-winning U.S. teams at the 2002, 2005, 2006, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2014, 2015, 2017 and 2023 events.

An original staff member of USA Hockey’s National Team Development Program, he currently serves as USA Hockey’s assistant executive director of the NTDP and USA Hockey Arena, where he is responsible for all aspects of both entities.

Monaghan was also on staff for the gold medal-winning squad at the 2010 IIHF World Junior Championship in Regina and Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, as well as at the 1999 and 2000 events.

Additionally, the Ho-Ho-Kus, New Jersey, native served on the staff for nine teams at the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge (2010-12, 2016-19, 2022-23), where he helped lead the U.S. to three first-place (2010, 2017, 2022) and four second-place (2011, 2012, 2019, 2023) finishes.

Monaghan works closely with the NTDP coaching staffs to develop the challenging schedule the teams play, including the growth of an NCAA Division I/III schedule for the Under-18 Team and the program’s transition to a full-time member of the United States Hockey League. In addition, he oversaw the NTDP’s transition to USA Hockey Arena by supervising renovations and construction of new facilities.

Monaghan, who sits on the USA Hockey Player Development Committee and the USA Hockey Junior Council, was honored at the USA Hockey Annual Congress in 2009 with the President’s Award, recognizing his outstanding contributions to the organization.

Prior to joining the NTDP, Monaghan spent eight years with the Lake Superior State University Athletic Department where he served as the Lakers’ sports information director for four seasons (1989-93), before being appointed assistant athletic director in 1993.

While with the Lakers, Monaghan coordinated fundraising and construction for the $5.9 million Gem of the North, as well as marketing and ticket sales. He earned his bachelor’s degree in journalism from Michigan State University in 1987.
