Before taking charge, Mountain served as the Knights' assistant coach under then-Head Coach Matt Tendler. "I am honored and thrilled to be joining the Swamp Rabbit organization and Spire Hockey family," said Mountain. "I want to thank Todd Mackin, Tim Vieira and Coach Lord for believing in me and giving me this opportunity. I look forward to contributing to the culture and success of an already stellar organization."A native of Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, outside of Philadelphia, Mountain played four seasons of NCAA-DI hockey, three of which were with the University of Vermont Catamounts and his final season with the University of Nebraska-Omaha Mavericks.
