Bulletin: John Paddock Named Ottawa Senators Head Coach
OTTAWA – Ottawa Senators general manager Bryan Murray announced today that the club has named John Paddock as its sixth head coach in franchise history. Murray also confirmed that assistant coach Greg Carvel, strength and conditioning coach Randy Lee, and video coach Tim Pattyson would remain on the club’s coaching staff.

Paddock, 53, has been in the Senators organization for the last five seasons. He joined the Senators in July 2002 as head coach of the club’s AHL affiliate in Binghamton. Paddock was then named assistant coach by Murray on July 9, 2004, and served as co-coach with Dave Cameron for the 2004-05 Binghamton Senators during the NHL lockout.

The native of Oak River, Man., has been a pro head coach for 18 seasons, four of those in the NHL with the Winnipeg Jets. He led the Jets from 1991-92 to 1994-95, compiling 106 wins, 138 losses and 37 ties in 281 regular-season games. Paddock’s teams lost in the division semi-finals in his first two seasons behind the bench.

One of the most successful head coaches in AHL history, Paddock guided three different franchises to Calder Cup wins (Maine in 1984, Hershey in 1988 and Hartford in 2000). In 14 AHL seasons as head coach with the Maine Mariners (1983-85), Hershey Bears (1985-89), Binghamton Rangers (1990-91), Hartford Wolf Pack (1999-2002) and Binghamton Senators (2002-05), Paddock compiled a record of 542-382-103 (.578), ranking as one the league’s best in all-time victories.

Last season’s Senators featured nine players who played under Paddock in Binghamton: Ray Emery, Chris Kelly, Denis Hamel, Brian McGrattan, Chris Neil, Christoph Schubert, Jason Spezza, Antoine Vermette and Anton Volchenkov.

Paddock was the co-winner of the Louis A.R. Pieri Award as the AHL’s coach of the year in 1988 (sharing the award with Mike Milbury), and is a two-time recipient of The Hockey News’ Minor Pro Coach of the Year honour (1986, 2000).

A third-round draft choice of the Washington Capitals in 1974, Paddock appeared in 87 regular-season games over five seasons between 1975 and 1983, tallying eight goals and 14 assists with Washington, Philadelphia and Quebec. In addition to playing in the 1980 Stanley Cup final with the Flyers, the right winger also skated in 445 career AHL matches from 1974 to 1984, winning back-to-back Calder Cups with Maine in 1978 and 1979.

Carvel, 36, returns for his fourth season as an assistant coach with the Senators. The Canton, N.Y., native joined the Senators in August 2004 from the Anaheim Ducks. Lee, 45, enters his 13th season as the Senators conditioning coach, having also spent eight as the Senators video coach. The 28-year-old Pattyson starts his third season as video coach, having previously worked four years in the club’s communications department.
