Jets add three to coaching staff
The Winnipeg Jets have announced three additions to coach Claude Noel's staff -- assistant coach Charlie Huddy, goaltending coach Wade Flaherty and video coach Tony Borgford.

Huddy, 52, has been an assistant coach in the NHL for the past 12 seasons with the Rangers, Oilers and Stars. He was with the Oilers from 2000-09, including the Oilers' run to the 2006 Stanley Cup Final.

Huddy played 18 years in the NHL, for the Oilers, Kings, Sabres and Blues. He was a part of all five Stanley Cup winners in Edmonton, and had 453 points in 1,017 games.

Flaherty, 43, joins the Jets following three seasons as the Blackhawks' developmental goaltending coach. He played 19 seasons of professional hockey, including 120 games in the NHL, with the Sharks, Islanders, Lightning, Panthers and Predators.

Flaherty played for Noel in 2003-04 with the Milwaukee Admirals, a season that ended with the Admirals winning the Calder Cup and Flaherty taking home playoff MVP honors.

He also has Winnipeg ties, having played three seasons with the Manitoba Moose in the AHL.

Borgford, 37, has worked with the Atlanta Thrashers since the team's inception in 1999 and joined the hockey operations department in 2000. Borgford became the video coordinator/coach in 2002.
Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
