Recchi lands in New Jersey

The New Jersey Devils have hired Hall of Famer Mark Recchi as an assistant coach, the team announced on Tuesday.

Recchi, the 52-year-old part-owner of the Kamloops Blazers, was most recently an assistant coach for the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Pittsburgh announced on Aug. 12 it would not renew the contracts of three assistant coaches — Recchi, Sergei Gonchar and Jacques Martin.

Recchi, a Kamloops product, will help run New Jersey’s power play, according to Devils’ general manager Tom Fitzgerald.
