According to the Lowell Sun, UMass Lowell coach Norm Bazin has signed a contract extension through the 2021-22 season.

Bazin confirmed the new deal Tuesday at the Hockey East media day at the TD Garden.

Earlier this offseason, Bazin reportedly turned down a job offer from the Vancouver Canucks to coach their AHL team, the Utica Comets.

Under Bazin, the River Hawks have compiled a 151-68-21 record in six seasons. He has guided UML to five consecutive Hockey East championship game appearances, five NCAA tournament berths, three Hockey East tournament championships and two regular-season titles.

“It’s certainly a privilege to stay here and coach the team for the foreseeable future,” Bazin said to the Sun. “It’s pretty special to guide the program you played at.”


  1. So happy to have Norm coaching Lowell for the next 5 years. What coach does more with less? Hardly any draft picks on his teams and they have been to the last 5 HE Championship games, winning 3 of them. Looking forward to the home opener in 9 days. Lets go Riverhawks
