Reid Cashman named Bears’ assistant coach

The Hershey Bears have announced that Reid Cashman has been named the new assistant coach of the Hershey Bears.


“Throughout our search for a new assistant coach, we found Reid to be the perfect fit in joining our coaching staff,” said Troy Mann, head coach of the Bears. “I look forward to reuniting with Reid, continuing with the development of our young prospects, and our quest for the Bears’ 12th Calder Cup. We are excited to welcome Reid and his wife Stefanie to Hershey.”


Reid was coached by Mann during the 2007-2008 season when Mann was head coach of the Columbia Inferno (ECHL), the then affiliate of the Toronto Maple Leafs (NHL).


“I’m very excited to work with Troy again," said Cashman. "I learned so much from him as a player and look forward to growing as a coach under his guidance and leadership. I’m also beyond thrilled to be part of such a historic organization.”


The 33 year-old, Red Wing, Minnesota-native, graduated from Quinnipiac University. Following college, he played for various East Coast Hockey League and American Hockey League  teams including the Toronto Marlies, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, and Milwauke Admirals during his five-year professional career. In 2011, Cashman returned to Quinnipiac University to serve as a coach for the men’s hockey team, where he has been for the past five seasons.
