Islanders name Richardson as assistant coach

(TSX / STATS) -- The New York Islanders announced on Thursday that Luke Richardson will serve as an assistant coach under Doug Weight.

Richardson was an assistant coach with the Ottawa Senators from 2009-12 before residing as head coach of the team's American Hockey League affiliate in Binghamton from 2012-16. He also coached Canada's national team to the 2016 Spengler Cup championship and a runner-up finish at the Deutchland Cup while serving as an assistant.

"Luke brings a tireless work ethic and outstanding character to our organization," Weight said. "He'll have his hands on every aspect of the team, including our systems, skill development and team culture. Luke's coaching experience, including four years running an organization as head coach in Binghamton, make him an excellent addition to our staff."
