Enrico Blasi is the Head Coach of the Miami University men's hockey team, which plays in the NCHC. Blasi is a native of Weston, Ontario. He is an alumnus of Miami University and played for the hockey team from 1990–94, playing on Miami's CCHA championship team in 1992–93 and captaining the 1993–94 team.[1] Blasi is the first Miami hockey alumnus to return to his alma mater as the head coach. He came to Miami after working four years—three as an assistant and one as a graduate assistant—under his coach at Miami, George Gwozdecky at the University of Denver.[1]

Blasi became head coach of his alma mater in 1999 and, at the time, was the youngest head coach in Division I college hockey. Blasi was named Spencer Penrose Award recipient in 2006 for National coach of the year and has won four CCHA Coach of the Year Awards in 2000–01, 2003–04, 2005–06, 2009–10 .[2][3]

Blasi got his 300th win on January 25, 2013 during a 2-1 victory over CCHA rival Bowling Green.[4]

Blasi is a member of the Advisory Board for You Can Play, a campaign dedicated to fighting homophobia in sports.[5]
