SJHN Daily: Madden, MacLean Find New Homes



Credit: San Jose Sharks

A trio of last season’s San Jose Sharks coaches have quickly found positions with other NHL teams following rather unceremonious firings on Jul. 1. This comes following early suspicions that their late dismissal would make it more challenging for each of them to find new roles for the upcoming season — not so!

Former Sharks head coach Bob Boughner is joining the Detroit Red Wings, the organization that drafted him in 1989, as an associate coach.

Meanwhile, former San Jose Sharks assistant coaches John Madden and John MacLean have found places with the Arizona Coyotes (Madden) and the New York Islanders. Before officially being announced to be joining the Islanders Thursday morning, MacLean already had a connection to the Islanders as his son Kyle has spent the last two seasons playing for the team’s AHL affiliate in Bridgeport.
