ESPN2 Analyst Asked For A Hug By Winning Coach In Emotional Aftermath Of National Championship
10th April 2023

Some winners are going to Disney World. Some can’t wait to find their family.

Coach Rand Pecknold simply wanted a hug in the wake of his Quinnipiac men’s hockey team winning its first national championship in program history, beating No. 1 Minnesota 3-2.

“I’m just trying not to cry,” Pecknold said to ESPN2 analyst Colby Cohen.“I don’t think I can do this. I’m just proud. It’s just awesome, awesome. Sorry. I can’t, I can’t. I need a hug, give me a hug.”

Cohen, a former NHL defenseman, complied with a hug (see below).

Quinnipiac won in dramatic fashion, scoring just 10 seconds into overtime. Jacob Quillan redirected a pass into the Minnesota net.

“Just an awesome group, awesome culture. …” Pecknold said after his embrace of Cohen. “You can’t put a value on what we just did for Quinnipiac University, what these boys did. It’s awesome.”
