Pat Boller is in his 12th season of service on the Wolf Pack staff. The parent New York Rangers added an Assistant General Manager designation to Boller’s title prior to the 2012-13 season, after he had spent six years as an assistant coach.
The 45-year-old Boller joined the Wolf Pack after serving nine years in the Rangers organization as a Coaches Assistant and Director of Operations, Madison Square Garden Training Center.

He also helped lead Manhattanville to an appearance in the Division III Final Eight in 2005 and 2006, and a Final Four appearance in 2007. The Queens, New York native made it to the international stage in 2006 as video coach for USA Hockey at the World Junior Championships in Vancouver, British Columbia, serving under Head Coach Walt Kyle. Also, Boller has coached USA Select Festival teams at either the 15-year-old, 16-year-old or 17-year-old level in every offseason since the summer of 2006.
