Former Terrier standout and NHL head coach Joe Sacco has returned to Boston as an assistant to Bruins head coach Claude Julien.  The Medford, Mass., native, who spent 11 seasons as an NHL player and scored 213 career points, was an assistant with the Buffalo Sabres last season following three campaigns at the helm of the Colorado Avalanche. During the 2012-13 season, current BU head coach David Quinn was his top assistant.

As a Terrier, Sacco scored 63 goals and 65 assists in three varsity seasons (111 games) and helped BU reach the NCAA Final Four in 1989-90.
