Wow, awesome signing for the Red Wings on the coaching front, from their official Twitter account:
The Red Wings have hired former EDM/NYR/VAN bench boss Tom Renney as an associate coach. Renney, 57, has signed a 3-year deal with the club.
Renney has a career 260-255-9-68 NHL record. BC native won a Mem Cup with Blazers in ’92 and a Silver Medal with Team Canada at ’94 Olympics
Remarkably astute hiring by the Wings. Renney is exactly the kind of veteran NHL voice the Wings have needed since losing Paul MacLean and Todd McLellan. Perfect addition.
To quote TSN’s Darren Dreger:
Red Wings announce the hiring of Tom Renney as an associate coach. 3 year deal. Good things happen to good people. Good hire.
