Jindra comes to UAA from the University of Notre Dame, where he played for four seasons from 2003-07 and served as a volunteer assistant coach during the 2010-11 campaign.
After graduating from Notre Dame in 2007 with a bachelor’s degree in business administration, Jindra spent two seasons as an assistant coach at Shattuck-St. Mary’s School in Faribault, Minn., where he worked with some of the nation’s most talented prep players.
As a player at Notre Dame, he was part of two NCAA Tournament teams and played in 150 career games, scoring 12 goals and 24 assists. He was a two-year team captain for the Fighting Irish, including his senior season when NDU won a school-record 32 games and captured the program’s first-ever Central Collegiate Hockey Association regular-season and tournament titles.
Prior to attending NDU, Jindra dressed for two seasons with the Omaha/River City Lancers of the USHL.
