College Hockey:
Blasi Named Head Coach At Miami

— Denver assistant coach Enrico Blasi will return to his alma mater as the fifth head coach of the Miami RedHawks.

Blasi is a 1994 graduate of Miami, where he was a two-time captain. As a junior, the former center (55-68-123) captained the team to its first-ever NCAA tournament appearance.

After his career at Miami, he spent a season as an assistant coach with the Wexford Raiders before moving to Denver to join his former coach at Miami, George Gwozdecky, as a graduate assistant in 1995-96. The following year he was named a full-time assistant at Denver.

Blasi replaces Mark Mazzoleni, who resigned on July 18 to take the head coaching position at Harvard.

He takes over a program that was 11-20-5 and finished in ninth place in the CCHA with a 9-17-4 conference record, missing the playoffs for the first time since 1991.
