MONTREAL July 9, 2018
Shawville native Luke Richardson has been hired by the Montreal Canadiens as an assistant coach.
Richardson will be tasked with serving as the Canadiens defensive assistant coach.
He is especially well-positioned to help the team in that area – Richardson plied his trade on the bluelines of six different NHL teams during a career that spanned more than 1,400 games.
He spent last season as the assistant coach of the New York Islanders.
The Canadiens are in a state of limbo at the moment – not sure to go for a full rebuild or to try their hand at making a push for the playoffs.
