Matt Vautour of the Daily Hampshire Gazette has this story on the hiring of Blaise MacDonald as assistant coach of the UMass hockey team.
To fill his new vacancy, University of Massachusetts hockey coach Toot Cahoon turned to an old friend.
The Minutemen announced the hiring of former UMass-Lowell head coach Blaise MacDonald to fill the assistant coach role that opened when Red Gendron left to become the associate head coach at Yale.
"It works out great for both of us. We have a working relationship and it should be seamless in terms of making the transition," Cahoon said. "He's a real fine teacher and coach."
