NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -The New Jersey Devils have filled out the coaching staffs of their minor league teams in Albany, N.Y. and Trenton.
Trenton coach Rick Kowalsky has been promoted and will be the head coach of the Albany Devils of the AHL. He will be assisted by Tommy Albelin, who was on Jacques Lemaire's staff with the Devils last season.
Kevin Dean will replace Kowalsky as the coach of the ECHL's Trenton Devils. Vince Williams will remain an assistant with Trenton.
The announcements were made by Chris Lamoriello, who is the general manager of both the Albany and Trenton teams.
It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
