« He has recruited a lot of real high-end hockey payers who are still in the NHL for UMass. On a personal level, Red, more than any other coach in Hockey East really reached out and welcomed me when I got into the league. We had a very nice friendship. We saw a lot of each other. When we played Maine, you knew it was going to be the good old days and tough hockey, ”said UMass coach Greg Carvel. “He was good for college hockey. He was a big, loving personality and when he walked into the room the energy went to him. He cared for people and treated people really well. He will be missed. « 

 » He was a force in UMaine Athletics and in the legacy of our men’s ice hockey program, « she said. » We mourn him and remember his many contributions to generations of players, that he oversaw and the program that illuminated the Black Bear Nation and the state of Maine. «
