Ray Edwards, director of player development for the Calgary Flames, was added as an assistant coach Friday.
Edwards will join assistants Ryan Huska and Martin Gelinas and Jamie Pringle (video) and goaltending coach Jordan Sigalet under coach Geoff Ward, who took over Nov. 29 after Bill Peters resigned following accusations that he used a racial slur.
Edwards joined the Flames in a player development role at the start of the 2015-16 season. Prior to that, he coached in the American Hockey League with Portland (2011-15) and San Antonio (2009-11), after spending three seasons as an assistant with San Antonio. He also has coached with Huntington and Cincinnati in the ECHL, as well as San Angelo and New Mexico in the Central Hockey League.
