First off, he had 2 awesome years coaching in the NHL, and while that time was short, he did win a championship and made the playoffs both years. Nevertheless, he wanted to coach younger players and moved on.

In the AHL, he coached for six years (I can only find 4 years of records though) and made the playoffs all four years including two finals appearances.

Say what you want, but that is three final appearances in six years between two leagues. He then would move on to Harvard and coach there for twenty-one years. In 1971, he was awarded with the Lester Patrick Trophy for his contributions to growing the game in the United States.

He also has two American Hockey Coaches Association coach of the year awards from the college game, won the Hobey Baker Legend of College Hockey Award in 1993 (honors "one of the all-time great contributors to the game of college hockey."), and the Sheaffer Pen Award for outstanding contributions to New England collegiate hockey in 1962. Also, in 1941 he selected by the Canadian Press the National League Coach of the year in the NHL.
