Doug Jarvis
Boston Bruins - Assistant Coach
[ Back to Coaches Index ]

Doug Jarvis was named to head coach Claude Julien’s staff on August 4, 2010.

He came to the Bruins with 20 years of coaching experience which followed a 13-year career as an NHL player. The native of Brantford, Ontario has won five Stanley Cup championships, four as a player with the Montreal Canadiens and another as an assistant coach with the Dallas Stars.

Jarvis never missed a game in his NHL career and he still owns the League’s iron man record, as he played in 964 consecutive games while scoring 139 goals and 403 points for Montreal, Washington and Hartford. He won the Selke Trophy as the top defensive forward in 1984 and the Masterton Trophy for perseverance and dedication in 1987.

Following his retirement as a player at the end of the 1987-88 season, he became an assistant coach with the Minnesota North Stars and spent 14 seasons in that organization, moving with the club to Dallas.  He left Dallas to assume the head coaching position for Montreal’s AHL affiliate in Hamilton in 1993 and he had a 79-54-10-17 record behind the Bulldogs bench.

He was promoted to Montreal as an associate coach with the Canadiens in 2005 and served four seasons in that position, including part of the 2005-06 campaign under Claude Julien.

Jarvis and his wife Linda have two children, daughter Laura and son Landry.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
