Ladislav Kohn hired as hockey coach at Santa Margarita

Santa Margarita High has hired Ladislav Kohn as the head coach of its boys hockey program.

Kohn, a former NHL player who spent two seasons with the Ducks, was an assistant coach for the Eagles the past two years, including when they won their third national championship in 2019. He replaces Craig Johnson, who resigned in September.

“I am humbled and honored to be named as the new head coach for the SM Eagles,” Kohn said. “I’m looking forward to coaching this talented group of players and being a mentor to them on and off the ice.”

Kohn played for eight NHL teams during his 20 seasons as a professional player. He has been involved in California youth hockey for the past seven years.

“I am thrilled to hear that Laddy will be the next head coach of the ice hockey program,” said Johnson, who is now a consultant for Santa Margarita’s hockey program. “Laddy is a great person and coach who will continue to grow the program and be a great leader for all current and future players.”
