Local connection

Thursday's New York Times had a feature on the coach of the UMass-Lowell men's hockey team, which was about to take part in the Division 1 NCAA tournament for the first time in 16 years.

(The River Hawks subsequently won their first game and then lost their second.)

The story dealt with how coach Norm Bazin's current players didn't know he was almost killed by a drunk driver just north of Spokane in 2003 as he headed up to British Columbia on a recruiting trip while on the staff at Colorado College.

The story has been told in the S-R before. Still, it's something to be paging through the Times and come across mentions of Deaconess Medical Center, Dr. Dan Coulston (after whom Bazin and his wife named a child) and other local references.
