Dallas Stars Name Charlie Huddy Assistant Coach

FRISCO, Tex. –
Dallas Stars General Manager Joe Nieuwendyk announced today that the club has named Charlie Huddy as assistant coach.

Charlie Huddy
“We are extremely pleased to name Charlie Huddy to our coaching staff,” said Nieuwendyk. “He has a wealth of experience at the highest levels of hockey, and we know he’ll be a great fit with our young defensive corps. With his name on the Stanley Cup five times, plus three other trips to the Cup Final under his belt, he will certainly play an integral role in helping this team reach our goals.”

Huddy, 50, most recently served as an assistant coach with Edmonton for the past nine seasons (2000-2009) helping lead the Oilers to a 301-252-103 record during that span. Edmonton posted a 17-13 playoff record during his term as assistant coach, including a run to the 2006 Stanley Cup Final, in which the Oilers fell to Carolina in seven games.

Prior to his stint with Edmonton’s coaching staff, Huddy served as an assistant for the New York Rangers for two seasons (1998-2000) and was Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations for the ECHL Huntington Blizzard in 1997-98. He was a player/assistant coach with the AHL Rochester Americans in 1996-97.

A native of Oshawa, Ont., he skated in 1,107 career games over a 17-year NHL career with Edmonton, Los Angeles, St. Louis and Buffalo, posting 99 goals and 354 assists for 485 points with 785 penalty minutes. He also skated in 183 career Stanley Cup Playoff games, notching 85 points (19 goals, 66 assists) and 135 PIM.

Huddy is one of just seven players to skate in all five of the Oilers’ Stanley Cup championships (1984, 1985, 1987, 1988 and 1990). He also appeared in the Cup Final with Edmonton in 1983 and with Los Angeles in 1993, in addition to the 2006 trip as an Oilers assistant.

The addition of Huddy finalizes the Stars’ coaching staff for the coming season. Stu Barnes will return as an assistant coach under Marc Crawford while Andy Moog will again be more involved with the team as a goaltending consultant. is the official Web site of DSE Hockey Club, L.P.  The Stars name and logos are registered trademarks of the NHL and the Stars.
