Coleraine native Mike Guentzel has a new job — as an assistant to Dean Blais at Nebraska-Omaha. The Omaha World Leader has a Saturday story here.
Guentzel, 47, has been on the move the past few years after his 14 seasons as a University of Minnesota assistant. He had one year as a Colorado College assistant in 2008-09 and then was head coach with Des Moines (Iowa) in the U.S. Hockey League in 2009-10.
He previously coached Omaha in the U.S. Hockey League in 1992-94. Mike Hastings is the other assistant under Blais.
