The man bun from Erik Karlsson ended up being a game-changer.
As rumored, former AHL Chicago Wolves head coach Rocky Thompson will be joining as an associate coach, handling the defense and power play. John Madden — previously the head coach for the AHL Cleveland Monsters, a 13-year NHL veteran and 2001 Selke winner — will handle the forwards and penalty kill. Mike Ricci returns in a development role, as well as Dan Darrow and Charlie Townsend on video.
The San Jose Sharks have retained Bob Boughner as their coach, removing the interim tag to make him the ninth full-time head coach in franchise history. The Sharks announced their full coaching staffs for the NHL and AHL levels Tuesday. Boughner rejoined the Sharks as an assistant to Peter DeBoer in the summer of 2019, and he took over as interim coach after DeBoer and the rest of his assistants were fired last Dec. 11.
