Senators hire Curtis Hunt as assistant coach

From Ottawa Citizen:

The Regina Pats are expected to call a press conference Friday morning, at which time the WHL club will announce that head coach Curtis Hunt is leaving to join the coaching staff of the Ottawa Senators, the Leader-Post has learned.

The 41-year-old Regina product will serve as an assistant under Craig Hartsburg, renewing a relationship that began two years ago with Canada’s national junior team. Hunt coached the Canadian defence under Hartsburg at the past two world junior championships, winning back-to-back gold medals.

Hartsburg has the ability to hand-pick his coaching staff and Hunt looks like a solid addition to the Senators’ staff.
