Keith Allain ’80

Even before the NCAA men’s hockey tournament started, University of Vermont coach Kevin Sneddon paid homage to his first-round opponent. Yale’s Keith Allain ’80 “has my vote for coach of the year,” Sneddon told College Hockey News—an opinion shared by CHN itself. Allain, who played goalie and served as assistant coach under Yale’s revered Tim Taylor, ran up the Bulldogs’ winningest season ever, 24–7–2, capturing the ECAC championship and the conference’s Tim Taylor Award as ECAC Hockey Coach of the Year. Yale, ranked fifth in national polls, and Vermont face off Friday at Harbor Yard in Bridgeport.
