The Anaheim Ducks have hired Trent Yawney as an assistant coach, they announced Monday.

Yawney, who coached the Norfolk Admirals in the American Hockey League the past two seasons, will join Bruce Boudreau's staff with fellow assistant coaches Brad Lauer and Scott Niedermayer and video coordinator Joe Piscotty.

Yawney led Norfolk to a 40-26-3-7 record and a berth in the 2014 Calder Cup Playoffs this season.

A native of Hudson Bay, Saskatchewan, Yawney has six years of NHL coaching experience. Most recently, he served as an assistant coach with the San Jose Sharks from 2008-09 through 2010-11.

Selected by the Chicago Blackhawks in the third round (No. 45) of the 1984 NHL Entry Draft, Yawney had 27 goals, 102 assists and 783 penalty minutes in 593 games with Chicago, the Calgary Flames and St. Louis Blues.

The Ducks also extended the contracts of senior vice president of hockey operations David McNab and director of player personnel Rick Paterson. Dave Baseggio was promoted from director of professional scouting to assistant to the general manager.

Quote of the Day

There was a lot of talk off the ice. From a player's standpoint, that's not the talk in the room. GMs make decisions, coaches make decisions, but as a team you have to come together and be ready to go, and we are.
