Jets add Huddy, Flaherty & Borgford to coaching staff
The Winnipeg Jets are pleased to announce today three additions to their coaching staff with the hiring of Charlie Huddy as Assistant Coach, Wade Flaherty as the Goaltending Coach, & Tony Borgford as the Video Coach.

Huddy, 52, has been an Assistant Coach in the NHL for the past 12 seasons with the New York Rangers, Edmonton Oilers, and Dallas Stars. The Oshawa, ON native’s longest coaching tenure was with the Edmonton Oilers as an Assistant Coach from 2000-2009, during which time he helped the Oilers reach the Stanley Cup Finals in 2006. Huddy was a Head Coach for one season in 1997-98 when he led the ECHL’s Huntington­­ Blizzard to a record of 34-29-7.

Huddy had an 18-year playing career as a professional where he won the Stanley Cup five times (’84, ’85, ’87, ’88, ’90), each one with the Edmonton Oilers,  and played in 1017 NHL games for the Oilers, Los Angeles Kings, Buffalo Sabres, and St. Louis Blues. Huddy compiled 453 points (99g, 354a) and 785 penalty minutes in his NHL career and also played in 183 Stanley Cup Playoff games recording 85 points (19g, 66a) and 134 penalty minutes.

Flaherty, 43, joins the Jets following three seasons with the Chicago Blackhawks in the role of developmental goaltending coach. The Terrace, BC native ended his playing career in 2008 after 19 seasons of professional hockey between the pipes. Flaherty played in the IHL, ECHL, AHL, and NHL, including 120 games for the San Jose Sharks, New York Islanders, Tampa Bay Lightning, Florida Panthers, and Nashville Predators. Flaherty played one season under Winnipeg Jets Head Coach Claude Noel in 2003-04 when Noel and Flaherty won the Calder Cup with the Milwaukee Admirals and Flaherty earned playoff MVP honours.

Flaherty has a close connection to Winnipeg after three seasons playing with the Manitoba Moose in the AHL. In three seasons with the Moose, Flaherty played in 112 games compiling a record of 62-36-9 and nine shutouts. The Moose reached the second round of the Calder Cup Playoffs in two of three seasons with Flaherty.

Borgford, 37, has worked with the Atlanta Thrashers since the team’s inception in 1999 and joined the hockey operations department in 2000. Soon after, Borgford specialized in game video and became the Video Coordinator/Coach in 2002. He remained the Video Coach until the team’s relocation to Winnipeg in 2011. The native of Regina, SK also played college hockey at Mercyhurst College in 1998-99 prior to joining the Thrashers.
