The New York Rangers agreed to terms with Darryl Williams to become an assistant coach, the team announced Tuesday.

Williams, 46, replaces Daniel Lacroix, who was hired by the Montreal Canadiens. He spent the past six seasons as an assistant coach with the Vancouver Canucks, and joins associate coach Scott Arniel and Ulf Samuelsson on Alain Vigneault's staff.

Williams played two games with the Los Angeles Kings during the 1992-93 season. He had 126 goals and 157 assists in 676 games in the AHL and the International Hockey League.

Quote of the Day

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
