The Canadiens have hired former Captain and 19 year NHL veteran Kirk Muller as Assistant Coach.
This move was rumored to be in the works for some time and today has become official news. Muller will join Carbonneau, Jarvis and Melanson to complete the Canadiens new coaching staff.
Carbonneau and Muller both played key roles in the Canadiens last Stanley Cup victory in 1993 and understand what is necessary to win.
Although Muller has little coaching experience and this will be his first venture at the NHL level, he was and is a great leader and will be a welcome addition to the new staff.
This is a busy summer for former Canadiens with Claude Julien taking over the reigns in New Jersey and another ex Coach Alain Vigneault getting another chance as Head Coach of the Vancouver Canucks.
