On the heels of David Quinn being named an Avalanche assistant to Joe Sacco, there have been two more coaching moves with BU ties.

UMass coach Don “Toot” Cahoon, a former Terrier forward and later an assistant to Jack Parker, has stepped down after a dozen years behind the Minutemen bench. Cahoon led UMass to the program's first NCAA tournament appearance in 2006-07. As a player, he was a speed-burning forward and a key contributor to BU’s back-to-back NCAA titles in 1971 and 1972. His other coaching stops included Princeton and Norwich.
●  College Hockey News has additional details on this surprising development.

Blaise MacDonald, a former BU associate head coach and Niagara and Lowell head coach, has assumed the head spot at Division 3 Colby College. MacDonald has spent last season assisting Cahoon in Amherst. Legendary BU coach Jack Kelley led the Mules for seven years and each NCAA Coach of the Year recognition before beginning his ten-year stint at BU.

Looking ahead

United States of Hockey has profiled the draft-eligible players on the camp roster, including Grzelcyk.

Grzelcyk, 2013 recruit Brendan Collier and Harvard recruit Jimmy Vescey grew up paying youth hockey in Charlestown. The Boston Herald talked with Vescey’s dad, Jim Vescey, who along with former BU standout Mark Fidler, coached the trio during their Middlesex Islander days.
