After his late season run following Claude Julien getting fired, Bruce Cassidy impressed the Bruins enough to be named the 28th coach of the team.

On Wednesday morning, the team announced Cassidy is now the full-time coach.

Cassidy served as interim coach for the Bruins’ final 33 regular and postseason games, compiling an 18-8-1 regular season record and propelling the team to a berth in the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the first time since the 2013-14 season. Since Cassidy assumed head coaching responsibilities on Feb. 9, the Bruins ranked first in the NHL in goals per game (3.37), first in the NHL in fewest shots allowed (741), tied for second in the NHL in wins (18), tied for second in the NHL in power play percentage (27.8 percent) and tied for third in the NHL in goals allowed per game (2.30).

Prior to this year, he spent five seasons (2011-16) as head coach of the Providence Bruins, having spent the three previous seasons (2008-11) with the club as an assistant. He coached the Capitals from 2002-04 and led them to a 39-29-8-6 record and a postseason berth in his first season with the team.
