The Winnipeg Jets added three additions to their coaching staff on Friday, announcing the hiring of Charlie Huddy as assistant coach, Wade Flaherty as goaltending coach, and Tony Borgford as video coach.
Huddy spent the last 12 seasons in the NHL holding the same position with the New York Rangers, Edmonton Oilers, and Dallas Stars. Huddy was a head coach for one season in 1997-98 with the ECHL’s Huntington Blizzard.
Flaherty comes to Winnipeg after three seasons with the Chicago Blackhawks, where he held a similar position. Flaherty played one season under Winnipeg Jets head coach Claude Noel in 2003-04 when they won the Calder Cup with the Milwaukee Admirals. Flaherty earned playoff MVP honours that year. Flaherty also played three seasons with the Manitoba Moose.
Borgford comes from the former Atlanta Thrashers, where he worked since 1999. He became video coordinator/coach in 2002.
