He has served on the staff for all ten gold medal-winning USA squads at the 2002, 2005, 2006, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2014, 2015, and 2017 tournaments.

Prior to joining the NTDP, Monaghan spent eight years with the Lake Superior State University Athletic Department. 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.

Monaghan sits on the USA Hockey Player Development Committee and the USA Hockey Junior Council.
