Canucks/Comets Announce Hockey Operations Hirings

Utica Comets LogoThe Vancouver Canucks have named Paul Jerrard and Nolan Baumgartner assistant coaches with the Utica Comets. Pat Conacher was also named the Director of Hockey Operations.

Baumgartner and Jerrard will work with head coach Travis Green.

Under the arrangement with Mohawk Valley Garden (MVG) led by Robert Esche, the Canucks are responsible for the hockey operations while MVG is responsible for the business side.

There are still some hockey operations positions yet to be filled like athletic trainer, equipment manager, video coach, and goaltending coach. The Canucks might want to add a general manager or have that form part of assistant general manager Lorne Henning‘s portfolio.
