Dyment appointed Director of Hockey Operations; Eichel scores first pro game-winner

SB Nation has reported the appointment of former BU captain Chris Dyment as the Terriers’ new Director of Hockey Operations (DHO), completing Head Coach David Quinn's revamped staff. The Reading, Massachusetts native succeeds Scott Young, who was recently promoted to assistant coach.

Earlier this summer, Dyment had been hired as an assistant coach at Bentley, but he chose to return to his alma mater when the DHO position opened.

Most recently a New Hampshire Junior Monarchs coach, Dyment led the 2001-02 Terriers and tallied 73 points in four seasons, before spending six seasons in the minor leagues. Quinn and Associate Head Coach Albie O’Connell also are former BU captains on the coaching staff.
