Former Princeton coach Len Quesnelle has been named an assistant coach at Boston University.
Most recently, Quesnelle has been a full-time scout with the NHL’s Detroit Red Wings. Quesnelle’s primary scouting area was high school, junior and NCAA hockey throughout New England.
Quesnelle, who was a standout defenseman at Princeton and later served as head coach of the Tigers, has spent the past four years with the Red Wings after a nine-season stint as an assistant coach at Massachusetts. He replaces Scott Young, who was named director of player development for the Pittsburgh Penguins after three years on staff at his alma mater.
“We feel very fortunate to be able to add someone like Len, with his extensive experience as coach and a recruiter, to our staff,” said Quinn. “He is as well-respected a guy as there is in all of hockey and he will make a big contribution to BU hockey immediately and moving forward as well.”
