Bethel brings McKelvie aboard as Head Coach

Arden Hills, Minnesota - Bethel University has announced the hiring of Chris McKelvie as its new head men's ice hockey coach. The announcement was made by the university in a release published last Monday. 

"I look forward to the impact Coach McKelvie will have on the ethos of Bethel hockey," Athletic Director Bob Bjorklund said in the school's release. "Chris's performance credentials are impressive, but even more inspiring is his ambition to build Christ-centered character into the lives of our student athletes. I'm excited for our men's hockey players and thrilled to bring his many talents into the culture of our athletic department."

McKelvie comes to Bethel from West Point, where he assisted on the staff of Brian Riley for two seasons. With McKelvie working alongside twin brother Zach on the bench, the Cadets ran up a record of 35-29-11. McKelvie also worked with top players including 2018 Atlantic Hockey Best Defenseman Award Winner Alex Wilkinson, and All-Conference goaltender Parker Gahagen. His other brother, Ryan, was the head coach at Lake Forest from 2011 to 2014. 

McKelvie previously enjoyed a lengthy seven year professional career in the American Hockey League, much of it spent with the Albany Devils. He posted 61 career points in 267 career games in the American Hockey League, and also spent 29 games in the ECHL. 

He replaces Charlie Burggraf, who resigned after twelve years total at the University with its men's and women's teams.
