Young, who was named Quinn’s assistant coach in 2015, will join his former team and BU alum Mike Sullivan. The Penguins most recently won their second straight NHL Championship against the Nashville Predators this June. During Young’s 17-season NHL career, he hoisted the Stanley Cup trophy twice (1991 with Pittsburgh and 1996 with the Colorado Avalanche).
