Senior Eric Ringel begins his second season with the Notre Dame coaching staff as an undergraduate student assistant coach. The former Irish defenseman saw his playing career cut short due to a concussion and concussion-like symptoms that forced him to retire from the game.

As an undergraduate assistant, Ringel will remain involved with the team, assisting the Notre Dame coaching staff with a wide variety of duties on a daily basis.

Ringel earned his first monogram during the 2009-10 season when he broke into the regular lineup as one of the team's top six defensemen. In 17 games, he picked up one assist with one penalty for two minutes. He was +3 on the year with eight shots on goal.

The Hinckley, Ohio native was injured on Dec. 5, 2009 at Miami when he was run into the boards and received a concussion. The concussion-lile symptoms prevented him from returning to the lineup the remainder of the season and he was not given clearance by doctors to return to play.

In two seasons at Notre Dame, Ringel played in 23 games with one assist and was +4 for his career.

A quick, mobile defenseman, Ringel joined the Irish after playing two seasons with the Mahoning Valley Phantoms of the North American Hockey League. In `07-'08, he scored seven goals with 20 assists for 27 points in 50 games, helping the Phantoms to a 36-18-4 record in the North Division. The team advanced to the NAHL championship game where they lost to St. Louis and fellow Irish teammates Nick Condon and Mike Johnson.

In his first year in Mahoning Valley, the 20-year old Ringel scored 10 goals with 15 assists for 25 points in 51 games as the Phantoms were 47-14-1 and captured the North Division title.

During the `06-'07 campaign, he played for USA Hockey's Under-17 Select Team at the Four Nations Tournament and the Vlad Dzurilla Tournament in Feb. of 2007.

Born April 4, 1990 in Cleveland, Ohio, Ringel is a finance major in the Mendoza College of Business at Notre Dame.
