College Hockey:
Guentzel Leaves CC for USHL Head Coaching Position

Assistant coach Mike Guentzel has left Colorado College to take the head coaching position with the Des Moines Buccaneers of the USHL.

It’s Guentzel’s third time heading a USHL team — he led the St. Paul Vulcans from 1989 to 1992 and the Omaha Lancers from 1992 to 1994. He then was an assistant coach at Minnesota for 14 seasons before spending last season at Colorado College.

“I really appreciate everything Mike did for our program and our team last
season,” Tigers coach Scott Owens said. “He’s an excellent coach and a great hockey person. I wish him well in Des Moines.”
