After announcing that Jeff Blashill would take over the Detroit Red Wings farm team in Grand Rapids, the team is in need of a new assistant coach. General manger Ken Holland told MLive.com just who was being considered.
Only two names from outside the organization are being considered: Mike Haviland and Bob Boughner.
"We're not sure if we want a defenseman who's played the game or (someone) on staff who's got coaching experience,'' Holland said. " Mike (coach Babcock) is talking to a few people. We want to make sure we're not missing anybody. Mike wants to take a few more days.''
Jim Park, who is an assistant coach with Grand Rapids, is also being considered.
