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

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
