2023 WJC | Reid Cashman

Reid Cashman  is serving as an assistant coach of the U.S. National Junior Team for the first time in 2023.

Cashman is currently amidst his second season as the head coach of Dartmouth College’s men’s hockey team, as the Ivy League cancelled the 2020-21 season due to the global pandemic. In his first season with the Big Green, he coached the team to the first round of the ECAC playoffs.

Cashman was hired by Dartmouth in June 2020 after a two-season stint as an assistant coach for the Washington Capitals. While with the club, Cashman oversaw the defense and penalty kill and was responsible for running the Capitals’ development camps. Before coaching at the NHL level, he was an assistant with the Hershey Bears, the Capitals’ AHL affiliate, for two seasons (2016-18).

Prior to coaching professionally, Cashman served as a coach at his alma mater, Quinnipiac University, for five seasons (2011-16) and helped the Bobcats reach the Frozen Four in 2016 and 2013. As both an associate head (2014-16) and assistant (2011-13) coach, Cashman helped lead Quinnipiac to the NCAA Tournament in each of his final four seasons as well as three ECAC Hockey regular-season titles.

As a player, Cashman spent time with the AHL’s Toronto Marlies, Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins and Milwaukee Admirals and also won the 2010 Kelly Cup with the Cincinnati Cyclones of the ECHL. He capped off his professional career with EHC Black Wings Linz of the Austrian Erste Bank Ice Hockey League. A two-time captain at Quinnipiac, his 125 career assists and 148 points are both still school records for defensemen. Cashman, an All-American in his final three seasons with the Bobcats, was also named one of the top-50 players in league history.
