Woodcroft and Babcock know each other from the NHL circles as Woodcroft spent the last few years on the staff of the Winnipeg Jets and Babcock was on the staff of the Maple Leafs before being fired earlier this season.
The article above states:
“(Babcock) is a premier coach across any athletic platform and as a coaching staff we are very fortunate to be able to draw from his experiences,” Catamounts head coach Todd Woodcroft said in a statement. “Mike’s knowledge, his network and above all else, the modern lens he uses to look at the game of hockey will help accelerate the progression of our entire program.”
