Mike Haviland named Colorado College's hockey coach

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Colorado College has hired veteran coach Mike Haviland as its new hockey coach.

Haviland has a combined two decades of experience at the NCAA, ECHL, AHL and NHL levels and most recently was head coach of the Hershey Bears in the AHL. He was an assistant for the Chicago Blackhawks from 2008-12.

Haviland, 46, replaces Scott Owens, who resigned in April after 15 years behind the Tigers bench.

Athletic director Ken Ralph said in a statement, "We have aspirations of winning national championships and I am confident we have found the right coach to turn our vision into reality."

Quote of the Day

You know what? We've played in some pretty special buildings along this playoff run so far. You start in Detroit, you go to Montreal, you come here … I think it's the first team to beat three Original Six teams to get to the Final if I'm not mistaken. That says how tough the road has been. Those are tough places to win.
