Hunt staying with Sens organization
Curtis Hunt is staying in the family.

The former Ottawa Senators assistant has been named head coach of the organization's American Hockey League affiliate in Binghamton, N.Y. That position became vacant earlier this week, when Cory Clouston was promoted to the top bench job in Ottawa after Craig Hartsburg was relieved of his coaching duties in Ottawa.

Senators general manager Bryan Murray said today he's pleased that Hunt, 42, has agreed to stay with the organization and work with its young prospects.

"The fact that Cory came up here (to Ottawa) and wanted to do his own thing (with assistant coaches) made Curtis available," said Murray. "Number one, he's an experienced head coach in junior hockey. He did work in the AHL in the past. I think he's got strong character. He's got a work ethic that will allow the players to benefit from his experience and demands."

While Hunt asked for a couple of days to consider the offer, Murray said "the impression I got was he wanted the job (in Binghamton) badly. He was a little concerned about moving his family again. But in the end, it's the right decision for him and I think he's really excited about it."

Prior to joining the Senators, Hunt spent the previous seven seasons in the Western Hockey League as head coach of both the Regina Pats and Moose Jaw Warriors. He was also Hartsburg's assistant with Team Canada when it won gold medals at the 2007 and 2008 world junior hockey championships.
