Named the head coach for the Saint Anselm men's hockey program on August 14, 2002, Ed Seney is in his 15th season on the Hilltop in 2016-17.

A native of Lake Placid, N.Y., Seney has posted a 202-162-36 record in 15 seasons at Saint Anselm, and coached the Hawks to seven-straight Northeast-10 Conference regular season championships from the 2003-04 season to the 2009-10 season. Seney's teams have also captured the NE10 Championship tournament in seven of his 15 seasons as bench boss. Entering 2016-17, Seney ranked 15th all-time among Division II and III coaches with 359 career victories.

On Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2017, Seney picked up his 200th-career victory at Saint Anselm in a 4-0 win at Assumption that clinched a share of the NE10 regular-season title and the top seed in the NE10 Championship.

In 2015-16, Seney directed the Hawks to the NE10 Championship title game for the 11th time in his 14 seasons. The Hawks posted their ninth winning season under Seney with an overall record of 12-11-3.

In 2014-15, Seney guided the Hawks to their fifth NE10 Championship in six seasons with a 6-3 victory at Saint Michael's College in the title game. Seney earned his 300th career victory on December 6, 2011, in a 7-1 win over Southern New Hampshire University. In 2012-13, Seney led the Hawks to their fourth-straight NE10 Championship victory and earned his 150th win at Saint Anselm via a 3-2 victory over Babson College on January 19th, 2013.

In 2008-09, the Hawks finished with a 10-15-1 overall mark, a perfect 5-0 in the NE-10 regular season and a berth in the league semifinals. For the performance, Seney was named as the NE-10 Coach of the Year.

In the 2007-08 season, the Hawks recorded a 12-12-3 overall record and fell in the NE-10 Championship Game. During the 2006-2007 season, Seney led the Hawks to a 13-12-3 overall record, winning the NE-10 regular season title for the fourth straight season. In 2003-04, Seney coached the Hawks to a 20-7 overall finish, a school record for wins. Seney was named as NE-10 Coach of the Year, ECAC East Conference Coach of the Year and was named as the New England Sportswriters Coach of the Year.

Seney, who is the Hawks' sixth head coach in the program's history, is no stranger to New Hampshire's hockey culture. A 1981 graduate of New England College, Seney remained in Henniker and served three years as an assistant coach with the Pilgrims. From 1984-87, Seney served as an assistant coach at Norwich University, followed by a one-year stint as an assistant coach at Division I Clarkson University.

In 1988, Seney landed his first head coaching job at SUNY Potsdam, where he stayed for 14 seasons and became the winningest coach in school history with 169 victories. While at SUNY Potsdam, Seney was a three-time State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) Coach of the Year. His 1996 team captured the SUNYAC Championship and was one of eight teams to earn a spot in the NCAA Tournament. In 2007, Seney was inducted into the SUNY Potsdam Athletic Hall of Fame.

Seney and his wife Sandra have two children, Garett and Morgan. His daughter, Morgan, played on the Saint Anselm College field hockey team from 2008 to 2011.
