Mike Potenza begins his seventh year as the Sharks strength and conditioning coordinator. He’s responsible for the team’s overall strength and conditioning programs -- including the physical testing and evaluation at training camp, creation of individualized postseason workout programs and assistance in the rehabilitation efforts for all injured players.

Potenza completed an assortment of strength and conditioning coaching and internship experiences before his time at Wisconsin.

While earning his master's degree at Boston University Potenza instructed professional, amateur and collegiate athletes at Mike Boyle Strength and Conditioning, a private training facility specializing in various weight training, conditioning, agility, plyometric, stretching and rehabilitation programs.

Since graduating from Springfield, Potenza has held notable positions for Harvard and Colgate Universities.

Potenza was part of the evaluation staff for the U.S. World Junior hockey team that competed at the 2008 World Junior Championships in the Czech Republic.
