DETROIT (AP) -- The Detroit Red Wings have hired assistant coaches Jim Hiller and Andrew Brewer.

The Red Wings made the moves Wednesday.

Hiller had led the Tri-City Americans since 2009 in the Western Hockey League. He played in 21 games for the Red Wings during the 1992-93 season.

Brewer worked for Hockey Canada as its video coach for three years, including the Sochi Games when Detroit coach Mike Babcock helped the country win consecutive Olympic gold medals.
