Maggie DiMasi returns to the Saint Michael's men's ice hockey staff for her third season as a volunteer assistant coach in 2018-19.

Saint Michael's played primarily a Northeast-10 Conference schedule for the first time in 2017-18, finishing 9-5-1 in conference play to take second place while going 15-10-2 overall, its highest win total in 19 years, despite fielding a roster that carried 12 first-years. After a 6-5 overtime victory over Assumption College in an NE10 Championship semifinal, the Purple Knights suffered a 6-5 overtime loss in the title game to long-time rival Saint Anselm College. The Purple and Gold set school records for goals-against average (2.68) and save percentage (.914), while its 9-3-2 record away from home was the best in the NE10.

The 2016-17 Purple Knights rebounded from a slow start to surprise a pair of nationally-ranked Division III teams mid-season before tying for the NE10 regular-season co-championship and finishing as the tournament runner-up for the third time in four seasons. A 2-7 start gave way to a 5-1-2 stretch that included a 4-2 win over No. 12 Babson College - the Purple and Gold's first victory against a nationally-ranked foe in nearly 13 years - and a 5-5 tie the following day versus No. 8 University of Massachusetts at Boston. As the No. 2 seed in the NE10 Championship, Saint Michael's dispatched third-seeded Stonehill College, 4-1, in a semifinal before falling to No. 4 Assumption College, 3-2, in overtime during the title game. The Purple Knights' 892 saves were the most in eight seasons.

DiMasi provided prior coaching experience with the Elite Hockey Training Center in Northfield, Vt., having served as a head coach there between 2010 and 2016.

DiMasi played Division I ice hockey at Northeastern University, netting 10 goals and 39 assists in 113 games as a defender. She was named a Hockey East All-Star honorable mention as a junior, helped the Huskies claim the 2011-12 Hockey East regular-season crown, and played for Northeastern teams that won the 2012 and 2013 Beanpot titles.

The 2007 Vermont Miss Hockey attended the USA national camp for four years before playing professionally for the Boston Blades of the Canadian Women's Hockey League (CWHL) since 2015, and for ESC Planegg of Germany in 2013-14.

DiMasi earned her bachelor's degree in psychology from Northeastern in 2014, concentrating in communications and cognition. She was involved in the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) as well as the Marketing Club and Sports Management Club as an undergraduate.
