Craig Ramsay turned to another familiar face in Mike Stothers to round out his Thrashers coaching staff.
Stothers coached alongside Ramsay as an assistant in Philadelphia from 2000-02. He joins associate head coach John Torchetti on the Thrashers staff.
Stothers has also served as a head and assistant coach in the American Hockey League and the Ontario Hockey League. He most recently served as head coach of AHL Grand Rapids in 2007-08. He led the Griffins to a 31-41-0 record. He spent the five previous seasons as head coach of the OHL Owen Sound.
Stothers appeared in 30 NHL games in his playing career with Philadelphia and Toronto.
I’m told the team may not hire a goaltending coach full-time, but work with someone on a consultant basis.
