Ryane Clowe, whose playing career was cut short by concussion issues, has embarked on a new chapter — coaching.
On Tuesday, the Devils announced that Clowe will join head coach John Hynes’ staff as an assistant for the upcoming campaign.
The Devils said the following in a statement:
Clowe will join Assistant Coaches Geoff Ward, Alain Nasreddine and Goaltending Coach Chris Terreri on John Hynes’ staff.
“We are looking forward to Ryane joining our staff,” said Hynes. “His character, expertise as a player, knowledge of the game and passion to coach will be a benefit for our players and the Devils’ organization.”
Clowe, 33, signed a five-year, $24.25 million deal with the Devils in 2013, but only appeared in 56 games over the course of two seasons due to the aforementioned concussion issues. He stopped playing entirely last fall on doctors’ recommendations, having suffered four concussions in a two-year span — including the last in November of 2014 against St. Louis.
