On Tuesday, the Panthers announced coaches that will be joining Joel Quenneville's staff for the 2019-20 season. Mike Kitchen, Andrew Brunette and Derek MacKenzie were named assistant coaches and Robb Tallas will serve in his 11th season as the Panthers Goaltending Coach.
"We have assembled a talented coaching staff with unique perspectives and a wealth of hockey experience," said Quenneville. "I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to work with a proven coach and a quality person like Mike Kitchen again, as well as Andrew Brunette who is a bright, young, hockey mind who I coached as a player. It's exciting to welcome former Panthers captain Derek MacKenzie to our staff as he enters the NHL coaching ranks following a great playing career. Together with longtime goaltending coach Robb Tallas, we are motivated by the task ahead of us. Our staff is eager to begin working towards our goal of bringing playoff hockey back to South Florida."
