New Dallas Stars coach Jim Montgomery has added his first new assistant.
Todd Nelson David Bakhtiari Jersey , who spent the last three seasons as head coach for Grand Rapids in the American Hockey League, was named a Stars assistant coach on Thursday. It is his third job with an NHL team Roberto Luongo Jersey , including a 46-game stint as Edmonton’s head coach in 2014-15 when the Oilers went 17-22-7 before he went to the AHL’s Griffins.
Nelson led Grand Rapids to a 133-78-17 record with three consecutive playoff appearances and the 2017 Calder Cup championship.
His was assistant with the NHL’s Atlanta Thrashers from 2008-10. He was then head coach of the AHL’s Oklahoma City Barons, going 176-111-46 from 2010-15 with playoff appearances each season before his time with the Oilers.
Defensive end Dion Jordan practiced with the Seahawks for the first time on Monday after missing all of the preseason recovering from a “stress issue” in his leg.
Jordan was activated off the physically unable to perform list on Saturday and has a chance to play this Sunday in Seattle’s season opener against the Denver Broncos. Head coach Pete Carroll is at least remaining open to the idea for the time being.
“We鈥檙e going to see how he does during the week Doug Flutie Jersey ,” Carroll said Monday. “We鈥檒l go one day at a time right now. It鈥檚 been a while for him to get back. He鈥檚 a fantastic player and contributor and so we just need to see him.”
Jordan is a player Seattle is expecting to rely on this season to help replace the production of Cliff Avril and Michael Bennett. He recorded four sacks in five games played for the Seahawks last year and re-signed with the team this offseason after being tendered as a restricted free agent.
Whether via injuries or suspensions, Jordan hasn’t been on the field consistently enough to live up to the promise he showed as the No. 3 overall pick of the Miami Dolphins in 2013. He’s getting another chance with Seattle and will have a chance to play considerable snaps for the Seahawks this season if he can stay on the field.
“He had a really solid first day out Authentic Josh Norman Jersey ,” Carroll said. “He had been working really hard to get to this point or we wouldn鈥檛 be able to even think like we鈥檙e thinking. In rehab, it鈥檚 been like practice for him. He鈥檚 close. We鈥檒l see. I鈥檓 not going to be opposed to playing him this weekend.”
