Hockey East playoffs

Norm Bazin has changed culture at UMass-Lowell

Norm Bazin’s head coaching résumé at UMass-Lowell may be short, but his imprint on the program has been immediate.

When he took the reins for 2011-12, a year after the River Hawks generated just five victories, he led the team to a 24-13-1 record. Although Lowell lost to Providence in the Hockey East quarterfinals in the third and deciding game, the River Hawks earned an at-large bid into the NCAA East Regionals and lost in the final to Union — one victory shy of an appearance in the Frozen Four.
