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

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.
