The BU athletic department made official the coaching news we posted several weeks ago: Mike Bavis (photo) has moved up to fill the associate head coaching slot, replacing David Quinn, and former Terrier and head coach at two Division 1 schools Buddy Powers has joined Jack Parker's coaching staff. Bavis is entering his 12th season as a Terrier coach.

Reunited—Part 2
Former Terrier forward and US NTDP head coach John Hynes has left his post with USA Hockey to become assistant coach for the Pittsburgh Penguins’ AHL affiliate in Wilkes Barre/Scranton. Hynes, a member of BU’s 1995 National Championship team, spent six seasons in Ann Arbor coaching NTDP U-17 and U-18 teams, including the 2006 U-18 team that won a gold medal in the World Championships. That squad was captained by Brian Strait who recently signed a multi-year deal with the Penguins and may begin his pro career with the Baby Pens.

Hynes began his coaching career as a BU grad assistant and later was an assistant at UMass-Lowell and Wisconsin. Wilkes Barre Times Leader coverage.

Former BU All-American goalie John Curry, who spent the past two seasons with Wilkes Barre/Scranton has re-upped with Pittsburgh for two seasons ($500K/year) . He’ll contend for the backup netminding job with the Stanley Cup champ Penguins.
