On the Feb. 28 edition of USCHO Live!: Union’s Bennett, Air Force’s Serratore

The Feb. 28 episode of USCHO Live! features two head coaches whose teams won regular season league championships last weekend: Rick Bennett at Union and Frank Serratore at Air Force.

Bennett is in his first year behind the Union bench, having succeeded Nate Leaman who left in the offseason for Providence. Bennett has led the Dutchmen to their second straight Cleary Cup, the regular-season championship trophy in ECAC Hockey.

Serratore has been behind the Air Force bench for 15 seasons. His Falcons have won four of the last five Atlantic Hockey championships, including a 1-0 shutout of regular-season champ Rochester Institute of Technology last season. A 2-1 overtime loss to top-seed Yale in the NCAA Tournament ended the Falcons’ season at 20-12-6.
