Hartsburg returns to NHL as Ottawa's coach

June 13, 2008 at 11:32 AM   |   Comments

OTTAWA, June 13 (UPI) -- Craig Hartsburg, a former coach of NHL teams in Chicago and Anaheim, was hired Friday as the coach of the Ottawa Senators.

Hartsburg coached the Blackhawks for three seasons and was the coach of the Ducks for more than two. He has been the head coach of Sault Ste. Marie of the Ontario Hockey League for four seasons.

Hartsburg was signed to a three-year contract. Other terms weren't released.

Ottawa fired Coach John Paddock late last season after the team faded from a 16-4-1 start to a seventh-place finish in the NHL Eastern Conference and a first-round exit from the playoffs. General Manager Bryan Murray finished the season as the coach.

Hartsburg's NHL coaching record is 184-190-69 and he helped teams to the playoffs three times. He played in 570 games over 10 seasons, all with the Minnesota North Stars.
