Boston University alumnus Young returns as director of hockey operations

Former Boston University, U.S. Olympian and NHL standout Scott Young has returned to BU to become the team’s director of hockey operations.

“We feel very fortunate to be adding Scott to our staff,” said Terriers’ head coach David Quinn in a statement. “He obviously has a wealth of knowledge and experience and he’s been a close friend of mine ever since we were teammates here at BU. His career speaks for itself, being a two-time Stanley Cup winner and a three-time Olympian, and he’s very respected in the hockey world.”

Young, who retired from the NHL in 2006, has been the head coach at St. Mark’s School – his alma mater – in Southborough, Mass., for the past four seasons. He won Stanley Cups with Pittsburgh in 1991 and with Colorado in 1996.

An inductee in both the Massachusetts Hockey Hall of Fame and the St. Mark’s Athletic Hall of Fame, Young is one of three Terrier hockey alumni to participate in three Olympiads (1988, 1992, 2002) for Team USA and he captured a silver medal with the 2002 squad in Salt Lake City. He also was a member of the U.S. squad that took home gold at the inaugural World Cup of Hockey in 1996.
