Becker has announced the promotion of Michael Chartrand as the team’s new head coach.
Chartrand, who has been a Becker assistant since the 2011-12 season, takes over for Steve Hoar, who passed away on July 11.
“It has been a difficult three weeks for Becker athletics, particularly for our men’s ice hockey program,” said Becker director of athletics Frank Millerick in a statement. “Mike has done a terrific job as Steve Hoar’s assistant coach. He has earned the respect of his players and coaching staff and I have all the confidence in the world that he will continue to move the program forward.”
Chartrand is a graduate of Fitchburg State, where he lettered in hockey all four years.
