College Hockey:
Caufield returns to Stevens Point as Assistant

— Paul Caufield, who resigned his head coaching job at Marian last season in the wake of a hazing incident, has returned to his alma mater, Wis.-Stevens Point, to become an assistant coach.

Caufield is the all-time scoring leader at Stevens Point with 254 points. He also holds Pointer career records with 126 goals, 19 game-winning goals and seven hat tricks. Caufield was a first-team All-American as a junior and senior, and earned second-team All-American honors as a sophomore.

Caufield stepped down as head coach at Marian last February after guiding the Sabres to a 26-20-1 record in his nearly two seasons at the helm. The Greendale, Wis., native replaces Craig Heggs, who resigned in June to take a position as coach of the Springfield Jr. Blues of the North American Junior Hockey League.

“I’m very excited to be back in Stevens Point,” Caufield said. “This is a great opportunity to work with [head] coach [Joe] Baldarotta and return to my alma mater.”

“As a prolific college scorer, Paul will tremendously help out our offense,” Baldarotta said. “We’re very lucky to have him.”
