Bruins Set to Address This Gap Before Season Opener

Published August 31, 2023 at 4:35 PM

Montgomery has made it clear that the team is on the lookout to address the void left by former assistant coach John Gruden before the upcoming season commences. However, this time around, the role will be different.

Gruden's departure from the Bruins after a single season is primarily due to his new position as the head coach of AHL's Toronto Marlies in the upcoming season.

The responsibilities that were previously under Gruden's purview, particularly in terms of managing the defense and penalty kill, will now be shared among the two remaining assistant coaches of the Bruins, namely Chris Kelly and Joe Sacco.

Montgomery emphasized that the new addition to replace Gruden will have a stronger focus on player development and won't actively participate from the bench during games.
