College Hockey:
CC Names Owens Head Coach

— As expected, Colorado College named former assistant Scott Owens as the Tigers’ new head coach Saturday. Owens succeeds Don Lucia, who left to take the top job at Minnesota.

Owens, 43, was associate head coach under Lucia from 1993-95, and most recently served as head coach and general manager of the United States Hockey League’s Des Moines Buccaneers. Owens’ signing by CC came one day after Des Moines beat Omaha for the USHL championship.

“We were glad we were able to do this in an expedient fashion,” Tiger athletic director Marty Scarano told the Colorado Springs Gazette. “We came up with a coach we believe will be very successful.”

Owens, a former goaltender with CC, signed a multiyear contract, the terms of which were not disclosed.
