The Calgary Flames named Todd Gill the Adirondack Flames assistant coach on Monday.
Gill will primarily be responsible for the defensemen, according to the press release.
Like head coach Ryan Huska, Gill comes from the CHL. Calgary continues with the trend of adding new blood, with five total hires coming from outside the organization at Calgary general manager and assistant GM and Adirondack team president, coach and assistant coach.
Gill spent the last three years as head coach of the Kingston Frontenacs in the OHL. Kingston made it to the playoffs each of the past two years; last season it finished third in the Eastern Conference before losing to Peterborough in the first round of the playoffs.
Goaltending coach Jordan Sigalet will remain with the team as will strength and conditioning coach Mike Thompson and equipment manager Peter Bureaux.
In addition to the new head and assistant coaches, the Flames are looking for a new trainer.
