SAN JOSE -- San Jose Sharks General Manager Doug Wilson and Head Coach Peter DeBoer announced today that Bob Boughner will serve as an assistant coach on DeBoer's staff. In addition, Johan Hedberg has been named assistant coach/goaltending coach.
Boughner, 44, joins San Jose after spending the past four seasons as the head coach of the Windsor Spitfires (OHL). The native of Windsor, Ontario, re-joined the Spitfires coaching staff after a stint as an assistant coach with the Columbus Blue Jackets in 2010-11, seeing Columbus post a record of 34-35-13.
"I've known Bob for more than 20 years and he's an experienced winner, having won championships in both juniors and internationally,” said DeBoer. “He had a great career as an NHL player but also didn't have any problem going back to juniors to hone his coaching ability. He has a great teaching ability from working with younger players in juniors and we're very fortunate that he was available because he could have been working in this League a long time ago if he wanted to."
