College Hockey:
Powers Leaves Wesleyan

Buddy Powers has left his position as men’s coach at Wesleyan due to family reasons.


Powers took the job in May, succeeding 32-year head coach Dave Snyder, who retired at the end of the 2002-03 season.

Powers, a 1975 graduate of Boston University, has also served as head coach at RIT, Rensselaer and Bowling Green. He has a career record of 255-220-41.

Wesleyan has begun an immediate search to find Powers’ replacement. The Cardinals open their season Nov. 21 at Salem State.
