What a 6 Weeks

Manchester - It was April 13th when the Yale Bulldogs defeated the Quinnipiac Bobcats 4-0 in Pittsburgh for the National Title and Red Gendron was right in the thick of it.  What a six weeks it's been for Red.  Fast forward to Orono, Maine.

Maine's new hockey coach says one of his goals is to bring home a national championship.  Dennis "Red" Gendron was formally introduced Tuesday to succeed Tim Whitehead as head coach.

Watch Press Conference

Gendron said during a press conference on the ice at the university's Alfond Arena that he wants the players to experience what Maine's hockey players felt when they won NCAA championships in 1993 and 1999.

Gendron says he owes the university after he was hired as an assistant coach and helped the team win the 1993 national crown.

In his 34-year career, Gendron has coached in both the NHL and AHL. Most recently he was associate head coach at Yale University, which won the 2013 national title.

Congratulations on your appointment Red!
