Former Boston University co-captain and All-American defenseman Chris Dyment has returned to the program to serve as the director of hockey operations.
Earlier this summer, Dyment was hired as Bentley’s new assistant coach.
Dyment spent the past two seasons as head coach of the New Hampshire Jr. Monarchs of the United States Premier Hockey League.
“We’re really excited to add Chris to our staff,” said BU coach David Quinn in a news release. “He has a lot of good experience in hockey, especially after running a junior program the past two seasons. He certainly possesses all the qualities we’re looking for in a director of hockey operations.”
After his senior year at BU in 2002, Dyment embarked on a seven-year professional playing career that saw him win a Calder Cup AHL title in 2003 with the Houston Aeros.
As a Terrier, Dyment was a member of three Beanpot championship teams (1999, 2000, 2002) and was a two-time selection to the All-America Second Team (2000, 2002). He was named a Hockey East First Team All-Star as sophomore before earning second-team honors his senior year, when he was tabbed the Hockey East Best Defensive Defenseman.
