Bruins will bring back Bruce Cassidy as coach

The Boston Bruins have named Bruce Cassidy the team's 28th head coach, General Manager Don Sweeney announced Wednesday.

The Bruins went 18-8-1 under Cassidy, who replaced the fired Claude Julien on February 7, and finished third in the Atlantic Division. Under Cassidy's leadership, the Bruins went 18-8-1 in 33 regular and postseason games. They won their first four games after the change and added a six-game winning streak to clinch a playoff berth. "I think from that day we really started playing a little bit more together and we were getting results". With a season and a half as head coach of the Washington Capitals from 2002 to late 2003 and a year as an assistant with the Chicago Blackhawks, there was already some experience when he moved back up from Providence.

"We obviously had some success with Butch and it shows with the way that we played", defenseman Torey Krug said. The team lost to the Ottawa Senators 4-2 in their opening-round series. "The guys were excited to play for him".




Drafted 18th overall by the Chicago Blackhawks in 1983, Cassidy would never truly pan out at the National Hockey League level, getting just 36 combined games with Chicago to go with a career predominantly spent in the IHL and overseas.

Prior to joining the team as an assistant coach last season, Cassidy coached the Providence Bruins from 2011 to 2016.
